Shortcuts in the Run Window

I have copied and renamed a few Windows Applications in the system32-folder to use these one-letter-shortcuts in the Run Window.
  • Notepad.exe : n.exe
  • Mspaint.exe : p.exe
  • Cmd.exe : c.exe
  • Mmc.exe : m.exe
  • regedt32.exe : r.exe
  • ...
Sure you can find some more! Open Run Window (shortcut Windows-key + R), type n, press enter and Notepad will appear! As I often use the Run Window to start applications, it will save me a lot of typing. Being lazy is so cool ;-)

    and then you have to work on another pc (perform demo, new client, new laptop, your mom's...)

    winkey + r, p, enter
    error WTF?
    again winkey + r, p, enter
    error WTF WTF?

    ah what is the name again to start paint... paint? pnt? mspnt? mspaint? paint32? ...

    :-D

    customization is ok, but if you go to far with it (and forget the old way) you get lost on another pc

    no customization is also a way to be lazy ;-)
