Windows 7: Run commands remembered ?

22 Feb 2009   #1

Windows RC 7100 x64, Vista Ultimate x64,
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?

Window size is not remembered
Why "suddenly" are all my windows opening at less than full screen? No matter what I click on, My Docs, favorite websites, etc., there's now a gap at the bottom of the screen. What did I do to cause this and what can I do to fix it? Annoying to say the least.
