[1] This run command cannot be executed from the Command Prompt because the file is not in the default Windows path. However, it can be run from the Windows Search box or the Run box.

[2] This CPL file can be executed as a run command to open this Control Panel applet but please know that there is a new standard (that began with Windows Vista) to open Control Panel applets. This is why there aren’t nearly as many CPL files as there are Control Panel applets even though they are all executable from via a command. See Command Line Commands for Control Panel Applets for the complete list.

[3] The dvdplay run command opens Windows Media Player and automatically starts to play the DVD movie in the primary DVD drive.

[4] You must follow the fontview run command with the name of the font that you wish to see.

[5] When you execute the regedt32 run command, it simply forwards to regedit and executes that program instead. Two distinct versions of Registry Editor did exist in some earlier versions of Windows.
