What's the keyboard shortcut to run an app in elevated mode on Windows 10?


I can always right-click an app in the Start menu and select Run as administrator, but is there an easier way to run an elevated app on Windows 10?


In order to quickly run an app in elevated mode, simply use the Ctrl + Shift keyboard shortcut while clicking the app, and then you’ll see the prompted to run the app elevated with administrator rights.

Check out this demo:


Another way to start a Program/App in Advanced/Administrator mode is to hit “ctrl” - “alt’ and “del” and bring up “task manager.” Click on the File Menu and then click on “run new task.” Type into the “Open” box,” say “CMD.” Click on the box “Create this task with administrative privileges.” You’ll be running the CMD app with administrative privileges.
