VISTA: How To Run A Program As Administrator

To do this all you have to do is the following:

* Right-click on the shortcut for the program
* Click on the Advanced button
* In the Dialog window that pops up check the box ‘Run As Administrator’

Once you’ve done this that particular application will always run as administrator, which can help solve compatibility problems.


As you probably know, you can use the new Search box in the Windows Vista Start Menu the same way you used the Run command in Windows XP (plus, it does a whole lot more). To run a program as an administrator from the Search box, type the command (such as CMD for the command prompt) and then press Ctrl-Shift-Enter.


Set a program to always run as administrator
If you have a program that you run frequently, you can set the program to always run as administrator. To do this, use the following steps:


1. Right-click the program icon and click Properties.
2. On the Property sheet, click the Compatibility tab.
3. Under Privilege Level, select the Run this program as an administrator check box, and then click OK. ')}
