How to launch or access command prompt, control panel and programs and features in Windows 10?

Microsoft provides a quick easy on how to do this.

On a laptop or desktop PC with Windows 10, right click on the windows logo, or the windows start button and a pop up menu is shown. See screen shot below:



The windows run box is also part of the menu which provides quick access to run or open programs.

Windows run box provides quick access to most of the programs if you are familiar with the application name.

For example to launch Microsoft paint brush you can easily launch it from the run box by typing "pbrush" (don't include the quotes when typing).  Or to run word type "winword",

If you have been using snip to capture images on your screen, you can also launch it using the run box by typing: snippingtool
