Keeping lots of shortcuts in your desktop may slow down your windows Operating System. To help boost your system your should clean up your windows desktop by removing all shortcuts. But in that case I have to access many apps from program files and that a lot of clicks. How could a person save time from all this clicking. I have a solution for this using your Run command. Only this you need to remember the keyword that you have created. So how this is done. For this on your desktop right click your mouse, select new - shortcut. a window will appear, name your shortcut for example your use mozilla firefox a lot so name it mf, Browse the location to program files and locate firefox.exe on mozzila folder in the disk drive you installed. Now save the file. If you click the mf link that your browser will show up. but that's not what we want. Cut the mf shortcut by selecting and right clicking and then selecting cut option. Now go to windows folder located in the windows installed directory mostly C: drive. Now move to system32 folder and paste there. If any windows message pops up just allow it to perform paste operation. Now close that window. If you are using windows based keyboard. select windows logo+R or go to start and select run. A run terminal will pop up and type in mf. Volla you will see your Firefox up and running. What you can do is you can also do that same stuff to other apps that you use daily or mostly and improve your windows startup speed.

Well you could simply go to the task manager and find out the executable file is called.. And simply type it in run command.. For example.. Type firefox to run Mozzila Firefox.. Type notepad to run the classic windows notepad application.. Your procedure is fine.. But its too long and tiresome..
