    Copying exe into system32 folder no longer allows me to run that exe without typing path...


    In the past, If I wanted to run a program like "procexp.exe" from the RUN box without having to type the entire folder path to the executable, I would first copy the exe into "c:\windows\system32" folder.


    This no longer works for me.


    Am I right? Did an update disable this in order to discourage my bad practice, and encourage me to use the better method of the APPS PATH registry key, or at least the PATH environment variable?


    Or is it due to something else?

    :)

    EXE in Startup folder not running


    I have the same problem with MS works calendar reminder, the .exe is listed in the startup folder but at the time specified for the reminder it doesn't show the reminder pop-up.
    Tbh this was also a problem under Win 7 & 8/8.1 but rectified it by copying the alarm/calendar reminder .exe to the startup folder, this doesn't work with 10.

    RUN won't 'run' EXE files

    Since 1803 was loaded on 3 of my Dell laptops (various models) I've discovered that the RUN function (under Windows Start Button) won't "run" an EXE file that is located in my download folder.

    Same response on 3 different laptops.

    I have a history of the APP for these EXEs (~12+ years worth) and they have always run from the RUN box and from the same download folder.

    I can get the EXE to run when I click on it from Windows File Explorer or the Directory Opus File Manager.

    I've also copied the two most recent EXEs that I downloaded since the 1803 update to my Desktop and they will run from the RUN box at that location.

    I'm guessing something has changed with the 1803 update to affect this, but have not been able to figure it out as of yet.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
