  2. Windows + Run history

    Hoping to get some help. My issue:

    When I access the run function (my preferred method is Windows Key + R) it does not remember any of the commands I enter in it. It does however, seem to pull history from other places. e.g.
    If I type winver to check my version/build, the next time I come back and type the first letter w, instead of winver being suggested I get a list of recently visited urls (all which start with w as www.). If I type the letter c a list of files/folders recently accessed on the c drive is displayed and so on.

    It appears to be pulling the history from other histories and anything typed in the run dialog is not remembered. I've searched for possible answers but none of the suggested remedies I've looked at have had any effect. I've inserted a screencap of the above mentioned example.

    TIA Phil

    Run dialog box doesn't remember history

    Thanks again, @dalchina. I marked the thread solved because the fix below helped. But I will take a look at the other suggestions that you made, as I still have the sfc issue (although it wasn't affecting the Run dialog box. As usual, you've been a big help!

    Run dialog box doesn't remember history

    Run dialog box typed history [​IMG]
    All of a sudden my Run dialog box is empty. The icons on the left of the image are just part of my desktop. Also, if I put in something like "control printers" or gpedit.msc, they open, but the Run dialog box is empty the next time. I haven't made any updates recently, except Windows Defender. Any ideas how to correct this?
    Thanks in advance,

    Additional: I ran sfc /scannow & got this message:
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

    The CBS.log file is huge & I don't know what I'm looking for. Any advice?
    Thanks again,
