Using the Search Box in Windows 7

Find and run anything in Windows by using the Windows 7 search box. Click the Start Orb (that is the little circle on the bottom left of the task bar with the windows flag / logo in it) or press then Windows key and type the name of the program you wish to run or file you wish to edit. Windows 7 does a very good job at finding an exact match and simply pressing enter will execute that program or open that file. If more than one match is found, use the up and down arrow keys to select the file you wish to open and then press Enter.

 Running as administrator: Some programs may require administrator mode in order to function properly. You can run any program as administrator from the search box by typing the name of the program you want to run and then instead of pressing Enter to run the program press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to run as administrator. If you want to click and run a program as administrator hold down the Ctrl+Shift and then click the icon.
