execExecute and execution are terms that describe the process of running a computer software program or command. For example, each time you open your Internet browser you are executing the program. In Windows to execute a program, double-click the executable file or double-click the shortcut icon pointing to the executable file. If you have a hard time double-clicking an icon, you can click the icon once to highlight it and then press the Enter key on the keyboard.
