Windows 7: Run as Administrator switch

Run as Administrator switch

C:\program.exe /runasadministrator

I think that the only way to open programs in the command prompt as an Administrator is start of by using an Elevated Command Prompt.

Now all applications open by default as an administrator as far as I am aware (but only in that window in that session).
