Stupid Question - Command Prompt

I believe this is the right place. =P

Okay so heres the deal, I put a shortcut on my desktop for Command Prompt, I assigned it a shortcut key as well (for quicker access) now my question is, how do I make it so when I open it via double click (two left clicks) or the shortcut keys, it is evaluated?

It doesn't give me the option under properties.

EDIT: Also if anyone knows how to get the fonts: Times New Roman and Segoe UI, for font options, that'd also be great. Registry edit + reboot didn't add them. :'(

Dark,

Did the same thing as you to see if I had the same problem. And, guess what?, I did, and cannot figure out why.

As to the fonts; never used the Registry to enter fonts so I am lost at what you are trying to do.

Would be nice not having to right click > Run as administrator. :|

The registry thing is suppose to allow more fonts (as opposed to the 2 or 3 standard ugly ones). Though it didn't add either of those fonts I wanted.

OMG I just looked into tutorials and didn't see it. Thanks Tews, probably 'overlooked it'.
