More than 10 years of AutoCAD experience as a CAD user, I have found many tips and tricks to work more effective and creative during my working time. Fortunately, I have some tips that works well until now, although there are some changes of the AutoCAD version. Today, I would like to share one great tip but I think it would be more funny than useful. I sometime used it to open another application by using AutoCAD. This is the procedure to call another application as you see in the pictures below.

Here is how:
Command: Start <enter>
Application to start: calc <enter>
By using this tip, you should be remember the name of the application exactly. If there are something wrong, you have to check the name of the application by having a right click on the shortcut of the application, then you can look at its name. I will give you the list of the applications for testing.

Application Name of the application to be 
Calculator calc
Microsoft Office Word 2007 winword
Microsoft Powerpoint powerpnt
Paint mspaint
Internet Explorer iexplore
