Execute Run Command as Admin in Windows 10
By default, the Run Command uses privileges of the User Account that you are logged-in, while calling up the Run Command box.
However, it is possible to Execute Run Command as Admin, even if you are not logged-in to your Admin Account, while calling up the Run Command box.
So let us go ahead and take a look at how to Execute Run Command as Admin from a regular User Account, without any Admin Privileges.
1. Right-click on the Start Button and click on Run in the menu that appears.
Alternatively, you can press Windows+R keys to open the Run Command Box.
2. In the Run Command Window, type the Name of the File, Folder, Program or Command that you want to Run as an Administrator.
3. After typing the Command, do not click on OK, instead press Ctrl+Shift+Enter Keys on the Keyboard of your computer.
Note: Clicking on OK or pressing the Enter Key runs the Command as a regular User and not as Admin.
4. Next, you will be prompted to enter your Admin Account Password and click on OK.
Once you press OK, the Command that you had typed into the Run Command Box will be executed with Admin Privileges.
This way, you will be able to execute Commands requiring Admin Privileges, without having to log out of the User Account and then login to your Admin Account.
