Hi Brink,

Another useful shortcut I discovered :

1. Place a shortcut to cmd on your desktop, or pin it to the TaskBar.
2. Hold down SHIFT+CTRL+ALT and click the shortcut/pin.
3. Accept the UAC prompt

An elevated command prompt is opened.

Regards,
Golden

A minor correction to an excellent webpage on an excellent forum:

This should probably read:

"7. In the Start Menu search box area type cmd, then right click on cmd.exe (at top), and click on Run as administrator. (See screenshot below)"

Thank you again
