 +====== Quick Access To Everything ======
 +
 +===== Other way to do the same is through run alias commands =====
 +

 +
 +===== Intro =====
 +
 +
 +If you are like me, probably you prefer to open Start -> run and then type the name of the program and enter to access easy and quick to every kind of programs. For instance, if you do ''​Start -> run''​ and type ''​notepad'',​ you will open the Windows notepad. Sometimes it is quicker than to find the program among the programs menu of the windows. ​
 +
 +However, there are some programs that resist to this approximation. I've found that creating specialy crafted bat files could solve this issue. ​
 +
 +The first point is to add to the PATH variable the folder "​c:​\program files":​ you will locate there those batch files. ​
 +
 +The second point is to put there the batch files. Here are some: 
 +
 +===== Launch the gimp =====
 +
 +Call this program "​gimp.bat"​ and voila! Whenever you type ''​gimp''​ in your "​run"​ window, the gimp will open.
 +
 +<code bat>
 +
 +@start "​Gimp"​ "​C:​\program files\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-2.6.exe" ​
 +
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== Open a folder =====
 +
 +<code bat>
 +@echo off
 +
 +set destdir="​X:​\some\special and rare\and complex\path"​
 +
 +start "​Explorer"​ "​%windir%\explorer.exe"​ %destdir%
 +
 +</​code>​
