    Can Run option be sent to Start Menu?


    Frankly I would like to be able to customise what used to be the Start Menu. I would like to have the run option available as well as the search option to search files/folders etc, as before.

    Right clicking on an empty spot in the start menu doesn't give me anything.
    I've looked at tutorials on the search bar, but all I have available is Cortana, and hiding her doesn't give me any other search option. I don't use Cortana because I prefer google. Edge takes a very long time to load for me.

    I'd also like to add Paint to the Start menu.

    By Default the Run command is on the right-click menu of the Start button. Or as with previous Windows hold down the Windows key and press R. I have located Paint/MSPaint and right-clicked it to choose Pin to Start and Pin to Taskbar.

    Did you not know "Run" is built into the search box. Just type in what to run and it will run. Typing in "regedit" brings up "regedit" for example.

    The only thing I don't care for in using Search is sometimes the list of things found is too long when I'm trying to fix things.
