    easy way to search files on your computer

    for most, its obvious.. but for some i guess it isnt xD. soo, enjoy!



    1: press start > run..
    2: type in the files extension (ex: world of warcraft = wow, command prompt = cmd, notepad = notepad, calculator = calc, etc, etc)
    *note* has to be located in your WINDOWS folder (c;\WINDOWS)

    For 99% of hard drive set-ups for World of Warcraft, this is the thing to type in the "Start -> Run..." command box.

    C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Wow.exe


    Another interesting thing you can use the Run... command to do, is to obtain a full review of your system's hardware, processor, graphics card, hard drive, RAM etc. Just type in "dxdiag" [essentially it's DirectX Diagnostic - designed to inspect all the files associated with the normal Microsoft internal graphics software/engine]
