"Windows 7 and 8"? Check your facts! Did you even try and see if commands are working in Windows 7/8 just before changing the title of post to "Windows 7 and 8" to get attention of search engines?

I have Windows 8, I pressed Control+R (Isn't that called "Run"?!) and began with documents, videos, downloads-- NONE of these 3 worked! (Image attached)

Sorry, disappointed. Not happy with un-trustworhty and unverified information. Never expected this from you.
