    sorry Brink, not so understand how to open elevated command prompt, it's not go to all programs > command prompt > run as administrator ? sorry for my weird question , elevated command promprt it's different with usually Command Prompt?
    Hello sle3pingz,

    It's not a weird question at all. :)

    Yes, that for step 3 would be how to.

    An "elevated command prompt" is a command prompt that runs with elevated rights (run as administrator).

    A "command prompt" is just an unelevated command prompt that has the same rights as a standard user account.

    Even elevated rights aren't giving enough power


    In the Win7 64bit's guest account, Start Menu> right clicked on the 'command prompt' in the start menu. Chose 'Run as admin' or 'another admin user'. Filled the required user name and password. Command prompt window opens (with the title Administrator: Command Prompt". I type 'Control'. Control Panel Opens. I click on 'Network and Sharing Center'. NSC windows opens, but there it shows 'Access Denied'.

    Kindly help.

    Hello Zopfan,

    It's because you are logged in to a guest account. You'll need to be logged in to an administrator account instead.

    Determine the original user when in an elevated Command Prompt


    I'm not sure I have selected the right Tutorial to comment on, but here goes!

    This relates to a Windows 7 Pro PC in a workgroup.

    Suppose one is running as a Standard User, not as an Administrator.

    If one starts an elevated Command Prompt window, all the environment variables (like %username%) change to the Administrator username used to start that Command Prompt window.

    I can't find (via test or Googling) how to determine the name of the original Standard User in the batch file which runs in the elevated command prompt window. Is this possible? Thanks!

    my problem lies not in taking ownership of files in the command line. If anybody can help me...my problem lies in the command that i input in the cmd itself like the chkdsk command or the defrag command in cmd, there is always a prompt that "you dont have enough administrative rights". if anyone knows how the cmd itself can be taken ownership of...id be much grateful.....

    good day and god bless......

    Thank you very much for your kind reply.
    And very sorry for my belated reply (I missed the mail notification somehow).

    But
    the still problem persists when I'm logged into the admin account. Though I agree its very strange.

    Command Prompt. Type "cmd" without quotation marks into the search bar at the bottom of the Start menu. Right-click "cmd.exe" in the list of search results and select "Run As Administrator." Type the phrase "net user administrator /active:yes" without the quotation marks at the command prompt.

    Try right clicking in the bottom corner where CMD would appear normally, shouldnhihe yoi a list including run as admin!
