Tip: How to open a program as administrator

Hi Readers,

Before signing out today, I wanna share a quick tip that you can use in windows 7 or windows 2008 computers to open any program with administrator account. That means elevating a applications. You might want to ask, isn’t it easy to right click and say “Run As Administrator”?. Well, that option you won’t get for all applications. Give a try with Office applications if you want to observe this. In such cases, one need to open a elevated command prompt and launch the application from there which is somewhat time consuming. Instead you can use the below tip.

Hold Ctrl + Shift and then click on the application. It will automatically try to open in elevated mode.

Hope this helps and happy learning.
