    Hello Zakaria, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If it may help, you could use the method in the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut to run this elevated without getting a UAC prompt.

    Why not run a Command Prompt as the administrator and input your command. Shouldn't be any UAC issues when you launch which tool you want.

    I don't even see MSCONFIG. Windows commands | Microsoft Docs

    What exactly are you needing to do via a batch file?

    Seems that "notepad" items is something in addition to what you originally described that you wanted to do. I mean, the method I described works perfectly to launch the items within Tools. Maybe the issue is that you can send Command Prompt to the desktop but you need to right click on the shortcut and select run as administrator each time you use it. Maybe the properties of the shortcut need to be changed to give full control to the user.

    torchwood- I wasn't paying attention and thought your last response was from the OP. Sorry about that.
