    gpedit as administrator


    Hi,
    I want to run gpedit as administrator. When I type gpedit into search and right click on gpedit I am not offered an option to run as admin. I am the only user and administrator on this PC. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Works for me, thanks! Didn't know you could run console (.msc) files that way!
    Good job, @Cliff S.
