    i actually use the windows run box (start menu, run) quite frequently for running some programs.

    is there a way to customize the commands? add or maybe edit.

    for example, i use xplorer2 as a file manager, when i type "xplorer2" in the run box, it opens that app. is there a file i can edit somewhere (or anywhere in the registry) so ill just type "x" and it will open xplorer2?

    also, add some commands. so i can just type winamp... and then it will open winamp... and so on.

    thanks for the time.

    You can add application paths in the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\example.exe ... but many programs do this as part of their install routine. I don't think there's a way to create aliases thought. :doubt:

    Why not just create keyboard shortcuts instead?

    ExeCmd (freeware) from http://www.puppypc.com/windows/tt/launch_programs_faster.htm#execmd

    I'v had this program a while but never really used it. Within the program, I tried renaming Keyword agentransack.exe to x.exe and registering the change in ExeCmd. I opened Run and typed in x, then OK, and AgentRansack opened. You can have a fiddle about with the program anyway to see if it fits your purposes.
