Windows 7: Run commands remembered ?

Run commands remembered ?

Is there any way to get the Run box to remember commands ?
For instance msconfig, regedit.
Each time the Run command box is opened all previous entries are gone and it's blank.

Small thing maybe, but when I'm constantly fiddling it saves typing.

You can try pinning them to the start menu, that's what I have been doing.

Basically, it should remember them by default. You should have a drop-down menu with your previously entered commands.
Unfortunately I don't know how to get it back though, since I didn't manage to break that yet.

Hi djs,

Have you by any chance unchecked the following Privacy option: Store and display recently opened programs in the Start menu?
