    I plan to delete all the command that I type on the RUN in my PC. ( ex. dxdiag, msconfig). What should I do to delete them all?
    THANKS

    Every executable program can be invoked using the RUN command. Deleting them would make your computer useless.

    Can you tell us more about why you want to pursue this course of action?

    Right-click on the Taskbar, select menu item Properties from the pop-up menu. Select the Start Menu tab (2nd tab) from the pop-up window. Click the Customize button on the right of the Start Menu radio button. Select the Advanced tab (2nd tab) from the pop-up window. Click the Clear List button on the bottom right (Recent Documents group panel).

    Is it really that important to remove the drop down? It doesn't prevent you from typing the whole command. If anything, the reappearance of the drop-down should serve to help you memorise the commands.

    Copy the following commands over to Notepad, transfer it between PCs and you're good to go:

    compmgmt.msc - Computer management
    devmgmt.msc - Device manager
    diskmgmt.msc - Disk management
    dfrg.msc - Disk defrag
    eventvwr.msc - Event viewer
    fsmgmt.msc - Shared folders
    gpedit.msc - Group policies
    lusrmgr.msc - Local users and groups
    perfmon.msc - Performance monitor
    rsop.msc - Resultant set of policies
    secpol.msc - Local security settings
    services.msc - Various Services
    msconfig - System Configuration Utility
    regedit - Registry Editor
    msinfo32 _ System Information
    sysedit _ System Edit
    win.ini _ windows loading information(also system.ini)
    winver _ Shows current version of windows
    mailto: _ Opens default email client
    command _ Opens command prompt

    If you are determined to get rid of the dropdowns, download ccleaner which has the ability to remove MRU lists, such as the one you are refering.

    Well, we are talking about the drop-down on the run dialog invoked from the Start - Run right? If so, it should work. I've been using that for a long time. It is not really helpful saying it didn't work, without elaborating more. Did you find the Clear List button or not?
