lol, what? They're not hidden, they are all pretty well known to IT professionals. And if you don't know about them then you most likely won't be wanting to use them anyway.

Hidden to me not an IT professional and several of them sound very useful, I know the other day someone was asking about creating fonts.

Not hidden and most have been a part of windows for generations but not everyone knows of or needs them.
If you do not understand what they are for then leave them 'hidden'....

One for windows 7 is-
To enter "GodMode," one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:


GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}


Use at your own risk!

I really don't think this is a particularly useful list because clearly the author doesn't really have any idea what they're talking about and has a pretty jumbled list under a false pretence which rather than serve as a useful guide just looks confusing. These aren't hidden programs, using the run box simply functions as a shortcut for quicker use - in reality those using these programs on an infrequent basis are going to find it easier to remember their location (such as the control panel) rather than the exact name.

The choice of programs is entirely random, there's some potentially useful, some I doubt anyone uses and there's also plenty of genuinely useful commands missing such as cmd.. The descriptions for the commands range from brief to hilarious (ODBC Data Source Administrator = odbcad32.exe (something to do with databases) and perfmon being for 'ubergeeks') but generally useless.

As one of the main uses of the run command is quick access to frequently used programs, I think a list such as this is more useful - http://mypchell.com/guides/34-guides/69-156-useful-run-commands
