    Efficient Start Menu

    Add the Run command permanently.

    The Run command is a great tool to access locations and open programs. However, the Start Menu doesn’t have the Run command permanently pinned into its section, unlike the Control Panel and Devices and Printers.

    To do this, right click the Start button and go to Properties. This will open the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties. Open Customize. In the list of items, check the Run command. Lastly, click OK.

    The Alpha is not intended to be a successor or substitution for the Galaxy S5. The screen on Alpha is more modest at 4.7 inches, yet it is just 1280×720. It does still depend on Samsung’s standard Super AMOLED tech, however. Considering the 720p places, this model clearly lies in Samsung’s mid-range offering.

    Heading off to 720p is a good decision for Samsung. The lower resolution implies that the display will utilize considerably less power than a full HD one would, and that takes into account the utilization of a thinner lithium-ion battery. The overall gadget is consequently more slender and lighter; it is just 6.1mm thick and 115 grams. By
