Editors' review

RunWithParameters runs any program using a parameter without requiring you to open a command prompt. It integrates with shell menus in Windows Explorer, and it includes many preloaded parameters for popular utilities and browsers. It's free and open source, too.

RunWithParameters' installation wizard lets users enter any file types they want to associate with the program by typing them into a text field separated by spaces. By default, the program handles EXE, BAT, CMD, COM, MSI, and SCR files. RunWithParameters can support custom file types, too. Once you've installed RunWithParameters, you access this simple tool by right-clicking a program and selecting RunWithParameters on the context menu that appears. The program's user interface is little more than a text field and a Run button. You can type any applicable parameter in directly, though the program displayed a drop-down menu containing preconfigured parameters for a few programs. We started simple, browsing to a common graphics app and opening it with the Run button. The second program we tried was Google Chrome, which proved to be a good choice because RunWithParameters offered 19 preconfigured parameters, most of which disabled various features; for instance, we could choose to run the program with dev tools disabled or permanently enabled. Firefox had fewer parameters, but still many useful options like -private, -console, and -inspector. RunWithParameters remembers the last parameter you entered, too.

Developers, system administrators, and power users will love the capability to launch any app from the desktop or a directory, with parameters, without having to open a Command Prompt. If you find yourself turning features on and off in programs due to compatibility issues or other needs, give RunWithParameters a try. It can start your apps with the unwanted features disabled, with the right parameters, or enable features in others. This free tool makes either easier.
