ShiftRun is a utility that enables you to optionally run any OS/2 Full Screen program while OS/2 is booting.  When ShiftRun is started, it waits for the number of seconds that you specify and then checks to see if either shift key is pressed. If it is pressed, ShiftRun will start an OS/2 Full Screen program that you specify.  Presentation Manager will not load until you exit the Full Screen Program.  If either shift key is not pressed, ShiftRun will exit and Presentation Manager will load.

One of the most useful ways you can use this utility is to install it in your CONFIG.SYS to start an OS/2 Full Screen Command Prompt. When you do this, you will be able to recover from many OS/2 problems without having to boot from the installation diskettes.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.
