I'm not as familiar with the run command, but everything I need
is either in search or it's an icon on my desktop. Now, does that
sound lazy or what? LOL! I have used the run command some, though,
when someone tells me exactly what to type in it, and it works

It’s a perfectly fine way of using
Windows. I use the search box and the run command with
almost equal frequency. I almost never use the menus
anymore. My brain has pretty much defaulted to the standard
of giving a path/directory structure when someone asks where
something is in Windows, which is not necessarily how they
think as they often use the menus. The thing is, those can
be changed; programs can be moved around in different groups
and such without actually changing their locations on the
drive, so telling someone where to find a particular
application using Windows menus is not necessarily going to
be totally useful.
the search option is my best friend. LOL! I couldn't tell you
where a lot of things are in windows 10 and I've had it for
nearly a year now, but I do--most of the time--find everything
I want with the search option. I probably should learn my way
around, but it's just so easy to do a search and find what I
want that way. the other day, someone was recommending that I
go and look at my privacy settings because that's what she
does after doing a major windows update, and I found them by
doing the search. I love it, but I can also see where some
might not like it as well because when I do the search for,
say, Windows update, sometimes I have to keep arrowing and the
check for updates option sort of hides on me. I eventually do
see it, though.

I don't know which is easier in Windows
10, using methods like that described by the other person
or this method.

I tried this method, but it did not seem
to work well... So, I decided
to ask and the suggested procedure of using windows key+ i
and going to
updates, worked good.
Thanks anyway for the reply, maybe it was not me being able
to make it
work using search in the start menu.

you can search for something such as uninstall programs and

to know the specific name of what you are looking for,
Programs and Features. The search is designed so that if
you search for what you want to do, names are available to
