Run It: Small Utility to Allow Opening of Any Program by Typing its Name in RUN Dialog Box in Windows

Recently we posted a tutorial about opening a program by just typing its name in RUN dialog box in Windows:

How to Open Any Program by Typing its Name in RUN Dialog Box in Windows?

The above tutorial requires Registry editing and if you are not comfortable with it, our reader ".Rain" has created a small utility to do the whole task automatically.

"Run It" is a very small and portable utility which allows you to add any program reference to Windows Registry so that you can launch it by just typing its name in Start menu RUN dialog box. For example, you have installed 3rd party software "Internet Download Manager" and its executable file name is "IDMan.exe". If you try to launch it by just typing "IDMan" in RUN, it'll give error that Windows cannot find the exe. But if you add its reference in Registry using "Run It", you can launch it by simply typing its name in RUN.

How To Use:

1. Either type full path of the program's exe in the text box or click on the yellow folder icon and browse to the EXE file.

2. Once you select the EXE file, click on "RUN it" button. It'll immediately add the reference to Registry.

3. Now you can launch the program by typing its name in RUN dialog box.
