Where is the Run command on Windows Start Menu?

Let's find and enable it for you.

Right click on the Start button and click on Properties
Right away we can see that choice to be made: "Start Menu" or "Classic Start Menu". The good news is that the one you're currently using will already be selected, and I'm going to assume you don't want to change this right now.
Classic Start Menu
Click the Customize button:
Make sure that the Display Run option is checked.
Start Menu
For the not-Classic version, once again click the Customize button. Then click the Advanced tab, and in the Start Menu Items list, and scroll down until you see the item Run command:
Make sure that's checked.
OK your way back out, and the Run... command should be visible on your start menu.

What Is a Hacker?

Hacker has several common meanings, the unifying characteristic of which is only that it refers to a person who is an avid computer enthusiast. It is most commonly used as a pejorative by the mass media to refer to a person who engages in illegal computer trespass remotely via some sort of communications network .There is a community, a shared culture, of expert programmers and networking wizards that traces its history back through decades to the first time-sharing minicomputers and the earliest ARPAnet experiments. The members of this culture originated the term ‘hacker’. Hackers built the Internet. Hackers made the Unix operating system what it is today. Hackers run Usenet. Hackers make the World Wide Web work. If you are part of this culture, if you have contributed to it and other people in it know who you are and call you a hacker, you're a hacker.
