How to save a GUI In Way that you can run it from another PCs? I have created a GUI as a project and I want to give to my master. but it can't be run by double clicking on it. it can be run just by opening GUIDE and opening the GUI from that box.

If your master (teacher, professor?) has Matlab, he should be able to run the .m file corresponding to your GUI application. You could also give him the .p file so he can double click the .p file in Matlab to run it.
help pcode
If your master does not have Matlab, you can compile your GUI application to an .exe file so it can be run on any computer. You need to have the Matlab Compiler Toolbox to do it.
help mcc
help deploytool

pcode is provided with Matlab. Like Matt said, by default, you'll have mygui.fig and mygui.m files. Give both files to your master, he should be able to type 'mygui' in Matlab to run it. If he double clicks mygui.m, by default, it will open the mygui.m file for editing. If he's too lazy and wants to double click. You can run 'pcode mygui' then copy mygui.p and mygui.fig to him. He can double click mygui.p to run it.

You can redistribute MATLAB code and Guide guis using the MATLAB Compiler. This will give the other user something he can double click on and run if he does not have MATLAB installed on his computer.

Note: the MATLAB Compiler is not available for MATLAB Student Edition.

I don't understand what you mean "it can only be run by opening GUIDE."
That is not correct, unless there is something wrong. You should be able to type the name of the GUI at the MATLAB command line and cause it to open. So if you give both of the M-file and FIG-file to your master, he should be able to run it by putting the files in his local directory then typing the name of the GUI.

Again, this is not correct unless the GUI is broken. If the name of your GUI M-file is mygui.m, then you should be able to run it from the command line by typing:
mygui
Assuming both files are in the current directory.
