Since your account is in the local administrator group, this is no different than if you were to run the application yourself with out the 'run as administrator'
However, if you were not an admin, this is the way to elevate your privileges.
This is somewhat different than Linux because even if you are an administrator, you still need elevated access (by supplying a sudo, or another command to elevate your access).
sudo is very similar to 'run as'
