I am enjoying Windows 7, but because of some relatively simple disagreements I have with the interface, I've installed litestep as my shell, which I was very comfortable using in previous versions of Windows. Aero and the new and improved task bar just don't cut it for me. The biggest difference I need is hotkeys for starting applications, and from what I've seen Windows 7 doesn't have it. That's fine. Litestep does and that solves my problem.
However, I also prefer to use vim for my text editing, as it's far more powerful than notepad, and I don't need to muck around with the mouse to use it. I usually start it by right-clicking a text file and selecting the "edit with vim" shell extension that was enabled when I installed vim, and then it's all keyboard.
Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to edit the access settings when starting vim this way. I want it to run with full administrative access every single time I run it. That's basically all I use it for, other than some idle notes and light coding.
Is there a command-line argument to grant full administrative access to an application, or perhaps a way to grant my user unprompted administrative access? It appears that my user is an administrator, but not really. This new model of security through confirmation is dangerous, but in the case of someone that knows how to use their computer, and how they want it to work, it's just plain annoying.
Can anyone address these concerns?
