Run Software With Parameters In Windows

microsoft windowsYou need to either use the command line, run box or a program shortcut if you want to run a software program with parameters in Windows. All of these options are not very user friendly and can intimidate inexperienced users. Run With Parameters is an Open Source software program for the Windows operating system that provides another option that is suitable for users of all experience levels.

The computer program has to be installed on the system. It integrates itself into the right-click context menu of executable file extensions such as exe, bat and cmd with the option to add custom file extension during installation.

The advanced run box becomes available after right-clicking a supported file type and selecting run with parameters from the context menu. It is then possible to supply command line arguments to run the software with these additional parameters.

The computer program will remember command line arguments that have been used in the past for that specific software program. This option is also configured during installation. Up to 20 arguments are saved by default. The program will only use system resources during execution. The main application will terminate its process after the selected program has been started with the command line arguments. Run With Parameters is therefor a lightweight software program ideal for launching executables that require parameters from time to time (for example Google Chrome with or without extensions, Firefox with another profile). It can be downloaded from the developer's homepage.
