    Run command


    I use the Run Command a lot but found in Win 8 it does not keep my previous entries, it is blank every time I go back to Run, the drop down also does not have anything.
    I am hoping this is just a setting that can be switched on but have not found anything, any assistance would be appreciated.

    Hello Mitton, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    It sounds like "Auto Suggest" was turned off for File Explorer. You can turn it back on by checking the Store recently opened Programs box in the "Jump Lists" tab in Taskbar Properties, and doing eithert option in the tutorial below to turn on "Auto Suggest".
