    Excellent news.
    Perhaps you could share which solution worked for you so that anyone with the same problem coming across this thread can also benefit.

    Thanks.
    I created a command prompt shortcut on my desktop. Then I went to properties, then the Advanced tab and checked "Run as Administrator". This was all on the desktop so far. Then I pinned that onto the taskbar and deleted the desktop shortcut. So at that point, I had a command prompt on the task bar that had Admin privileges.

    PS The registry tweak (Item 11 in the tutorial) did not work in my case.

    Berton's method has always worked for me.

    I've always added this taskbar shortcut for Administrative Command Prompt since I started using Windows 10.

    Hello Bob,

    Which part in step 11 didn't work for you?

    I made the regedits as instructed and typed them in carefully and I still didn't have Admin privileges. So I thought maybe I need to reboot then that will get it to work. Nope. Didn't work for me. So the other method I described above did and I was happy about that.

    If steps 4 to 6 were done on the shortcut, it should prompt with UAC to run as administrator.

    I don't mind clicking the UAC. I do mind having to click Run as administrator every time I open a command prompt.
    That's the problem that was solved here. Thank you and the others, of course, for helping me get this to work!

    Unfortunately for @bobhurd while you can create a shortcut on your desktop to launch an admin command prompt, you cannot pin a shortcut to the taskbar.

    Sure you can. I just did it now and have done it in the past. Dragging it is equivalent to pinning the shortcut on the taskbar.

    I use the method Berton described.

    I suppose drag n drop to the taskbar is impossible.

    Yes, that's impossible. That was the method I tried and got the red 'not allowed' sign.
