In an online class I am taking someone has posted a qustion asking whether or not that they should be able to get to the command prompt from start>programs>accessories using Win XP HOME.
I use Win XP Pro so I am not sure.
The person said they could get to the command progm by going to the Run box and typing CMD - so they have it, but said that it was not available from Start>programs>accessories. Should it be?

I should have checked the message board for the online class before I posted the last time. The person posted back that he had figured it out. When he logged on under a differend accoutn it was there. He now remembers deleting some stuff froma the all programs menu.

So, he has his problem solved.

Thanks, Fay
