List Of Most Useful Run Commands - Free Online Tutorial

This will be helpful for the learners and the people who are looking for a job in IT Industries.

On the Microsoft Windows operating system, the Run command is used to directly open an application or document whose path is known. It functions more or less like a single-line command line interface.

In the GNOME interface, the Run command is used to run applications via terminal commands. It can be accessed by pressing Alt+F2. KDE has similar functionality called KRunner. It is accessible via the same key binds.

In the BASIC programming language, RUN is used to start program execution from direct mode, or to start a overlay program from a loader program.
