I'm little confused here. I'm on Windows 8. Basically I use Run prompt window a lot (Windows Key + R). I want to execute cmd as Admin from the Run prompt, not just cmd, any program if I would like to run from the prompt as admin. So, I thought find the location of the Run Prompt shortcut, it is here Code: C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools Then right click shortcut > properties > shortcut tab > Advanced > Run as Admin check box. But the Run as admin check box is greyed out. How do I do it? Any help please. My UAC is not disabled, please check these screenshots of above description. Thanks.
