    To open cmd.exe as administrator without creating a shortcut for cmd


    Hi

    How to make cmd.exe open in admin mode every time we launch though C:\Users\Username profile instead of C:\Windows\System32? Can it be done through group policy or registry setting ?

    I have attached the snapshot of cmd in admin mode for C:\Users\Username

    Also The windows version number is 1809 (OS BUILD 17763.1192)

    How are you intending to run cmd if not by using a shortcut?

    Do you mean...
    - the tutorial didn't do what I wanted
    or
    - following the tutorial didn't add the context menu entry as shown in Callender's screenshot
    (it's rather trivial- download and merge a .reg file).
    or
    - something else.

    At present I am confused as to your requirement.

    Are you aware, for example, that you can- with a small tweak- have a command prompt as admin option in your Win key+X menu?

    All too vague for me- good luck!

    @dalchina,

    It didnt do what I wanted. Though I merged the reg files, When I launch the cmd without clicking on open as administrator, it opens without as admin for logged in user

    Did you get the upper option added to your context menu as per screenshot in post #2?

    Please post a screenshot showing that, and the window you see when you click it.
    To post a screenshot use the icon above your post with tooltip Insert Image.

    If that's not working, please add a comment with a link here under that tutorial.
    Thanks.
