'RUN' missing from search in start menu!

I am using a genuine 64bit windows 7 Home basic came with my dell inspiron 15R in a DVD!
Recently I used a duplicate file finder app after which I can not find RUN in the search bar of START menu initially I was there and proved to be very useful to me.



Welcome to Microsoft community forums and thank you for posting the question. As per the description, you are unable to find the 'Run' option in start menu. Let's perform few steps to restore the 'Run' option.



Method 1:

1. Open the Start Menu.

2. Right Click on a empty space on the Start Menu and select Properties.

3. Click on the Start Menu Tab and click on Customize.

4. Tick the Run Command and OK.

Method 2:

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > Run.

To add it to the Start Menu:

Right-click your Taskbar > Properties > Start Menu > Customise > Scroll down > Add run command > Etc.

Also you can open the runline window by holding the 'Windows key' + R. This will bring up the run window even if it hides from the start menu. 



Hope this information helps. If you face any more issues while working with Windows do post on Microsoft Community Forum.
