Run Box helps you to Open any application fastly instead using your mouse and browsing the application to open it.But after running many commands in Run dialog Box you will find a list of used commands.This may irritate us sometimes.
There are many cleaner applications(Ccleaner) that will do this for you, but I will now explain how to do it manually.

1.Clear Recent Run Dialog Entries The Easier Way:
- Right-click on the taskbar and choose Properties, then choose Start Menu.
- Select the “Classic Start menu” option.
- Click Customize button.
- Now just click the Clear button to remove all of the recent documents and applications from the start menu.
- Once you’ve done that, hit Cancel and then Cancel again to make sure you don’t switch to the Classic Start menu.
