Run dialog with administrative privs?

Hi. My one W7 workstation's run dialog is set to run everything as admin:



I have a second W7 machine now and I want to get it to act the same, alas I cannot recall how I got it to do that. Anyone know? I have UAC slider at the very bottom.

Right click on "Run" and choose to run as Admin

That was fast, heh. Actually I just found it by accident. The admin run dialog I get is without doing anything special, just win-r. Turns out I had an admin cmd open at one point, killed explorer.exe when some program was giving me crap and restarted it from the cmd line which made an admin shell basically.

Thanks!

That's a great trick. I just recreated it!

So, did you actually look at the Run box before you did the "trick"? Do you specifically know that is how it was created?

Does it survive a boot?

My run box has admin, but I do not know why.

That is how I created it, but sadly, it does not survive a reboot.

Sounds like my former networking problem. I finally entered a string value in the registry to set my desktop as master computer browser. I had done so many things with permissions and all that I'm not sure if that is what solved the problem but its working now!
