If you find it cool, then follow this tutorial to create your own RUN command. After finishing with this tutorial, you will be able to create a RUN command for whichever application you want.

Below are the steps to be followed to create any customized RUN application:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\App Paths
