When I am working in command prompt the majority of the things I do require an administrative level command prompt. I normally have to right click on my command prompt shortcut and then select Run As Administrator. However, there is an easy way to modify the shortcut so that you no longer have to right click on it and select Run As all the time.

1. Right click on your command prompt shortcut and select Properties.

2. On the shortcut tab hit Advanced.

3. Check the Run As Administrator box and hit OK.

4. Hit OK once more to close the properties window.

You now have an administrative level shortcut without the right click.
