When I enter "firefox" in the windows run dialog (i.e. the dialog that appears when you hit windows+R), firefox will launch.
However, "firefox.exe" is not in my
%path% because when I type "firefox" in
cmd.exe, I get
'firefox' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
So apparently an executable doesn't need to be found in the windows
%path% in order to be discoverable by the run dialog. How does this work?
