Windows 7: Run with administrative priveledges when using WIN+R

Run with administrative priveledges when using WIN+R

I've noticed when using the Win + R keyboard shortcut on my account, directly below the input block it shows me a note stating this program will be run with administrative priveledges; is that not the same as right-clicking the Start menu shortcut and selecting 'Run as administrator'?

Note: Post was originally located in and in query to details in the Elevated Command Prompt tutorial.

I believe it is the same thing.

Hello ZaLiTH.


Can you post a snip, when I use Win+R I get a UAC prompt; are you using the "Hidden" Administrator acct?

I don't have UAC turned on though; nobody else touches my machine and I don't have internet at home, so high security has never really been a priority for me.

I don't log in as 'Administrator' directly, but my personal user account is marked as an admin. A quick Google image search gave me what I needed though; It's not a shot from my PC personally, but my run dialog box looks like this:


I actually tried this last night, taking special note of the folder path that opens when running cmd in different ways; it seems that using the Win+R shortcut doesn't open the same path as location Command Prompt in the Start menu, right-click and 'run as administrator'. Using the Run dialog (seen above) it still shows my user folder as the initial path.

I know I just answered my own question, but I only got to test it last night at home...

ZaLiTH,

Having UAC turned off is why you see the This task will be created with adminsitrative privileges message. That's all.

Oh I see, I didn't realise that.. I hardly used Vista and I'm still learning the finer details of 7. Thanks.
