    Elevated Command Prompt

    I can't figure out how to get an elevated command prompt, especially as a shortcut on the desktop. When I follow the generic directions (or even use Windows Run in Start Menu), the only option is Run but without Admin permission.
    When I try to create a new task in Task Manager ("cmd") there is no check box to run as Admin so the command prompt I get is without Admin privileges. You would think Windows would ask for my Admin password at this point.
    The issue seems to be that I am usually signed in as a Standard account, not as Admin account. Most apps (like Create a Restore Point) ask for Admin password.

    Win 10 Pro 64-bit 22H2.
