How to always run batch file as administrator?

I've made a batch file, but i don't know how to make it to always run as administartor. In .bat's file properties the option "always run as administartor" is grayed out. I have to right click it and then choose "run as administartor" from context menu. But i don't want to do it every time because it's annoying, is there any way to make run as admin if option is grayed out in properties?
