You don't even need to add the .exe let alone the path

/run iexplore

I wonder if any web browsers do this? or if it's only iexplore.exe and firefox.exe that can be triggered with /run iexplore.exe and /run firefox.exe ? i was thinking of opera and netscape ? smile

Install them and look in the registry where it was mentioned previously. Any apps that put their path information there can be run without a path.

This has been true since DOS days, but of course there wasn't a registry in DOS, so it was handled with SET.

PATH actually. And PATH still is valid on modern NT/XP/2000/2003/Vista boxes. (My Computer Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables)..

Hm, thought it was SET PATH, but maybe not. I haven't worked with autoexec.bat/config.sys in about 7 years.

Can use 'SET PATH' (as it's an environment variable), but the SET is optional for PATH. wink Anyway, way off topic :P

Yep, offtopic, but still... wink
If you use "set path" you'll get a listing of ALL envars begining with "path" (%path%, %pathext%, %pathwhatever%), "set p" will show all envars beginning with "P", etc...

You can add your own entries to the "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths" reg key as well... wink
