When you need to run shell commands on Windows as an Administrator, you typically must right-click the cmd.exe and choose "Run as administrator" in order to elevate the privileges in that shell. Well, it's very easy to create a shortcut for cmd that elevates automatically.


1. Create a shortcut to cmd.exe, perhaps on your Desktop. You might want to rename it Admin_cmd or something similar.

2. Right-click the shortcut and select Properties.

3. Select the Shortcut tab and then click Advanced...

4. Check the Run as administrator option and click OK


5. Click OK


Now you can simply double-click this shortcut whenever you need elevated privileges.
