I've just discovered you can execute batch files in the search box located in the Start Menu. I've always understood how you can use it to launch installed applications (or any *.exe files for that matter), but using it to launch batch files is a novelty for me. Now I have a new method to execute batch files. For Example: you have a batch file named "batch_me.bat" Just begin to type in the name bat.... the search will bring up the matching file name above in the search results. Click on it to run the batch file. Alternatively, if you have several batch files and don't know the exact file name, just type *.bat (ala DOS wildcard key) into the Start | search.I don't know why this was such a surprise to me. For the short amount of time that I used Vista, I don't remember the search box being so capable... By the way, you can launch windows control panel items the same way. e.g. type "inetcpl.cpl" to bring up the internet explorer options menu box.untitled2.pngOne minor note: I'm not sure if it was just my system or not... the above did not work if the batch file was actually located another hard drive. It worked however, when I moved the batch file on my desktop. So i think it must reside somewhere on your desktop or user profile folder for this to work.

That is nothing new in Windows 7. It's been available since window 2000.
