SuggestRun – Windows Run Dialog Box With Suggestions

Before Windows 7, Run dialog box used to be a very important part of Windows operating system. Now half of the commands can be used in Start Search without having to visit the Run dialog box but still the importance remains. With suggestions becoming an increasingly important part of search, Microsoft have failed to implement this functionality in Run dialog box.

To make it easier for administrators, a developer has come up with SuggestRun. It is a Run dialog box but with suggestions. It will provide users with live suggestions as they type.


As you can see from the screenshot above, while typing DirectX, it provided with four suggestions. Select any one by pressing the arrow key and hit Enter.

The application is still under development and we would love to see the hotkeys support in the next release. In my opinion, the better option would be to implement the suggestions in the default Run dialog.

Download SuggestRun

It works on all versions of Windows, including the latest Windows 7.
