Windows 10: Lost ability to right click, run as Adminsitrator on Start menu search
Lost ability to right click, run as Adminsitrator on Start menu search
When I press/click on Start, and then type 'Power' for instance to get PowerShell, I want to right click and Run as administrator. Somehow that is gone. I can only Pin to Start. Did updates, reboots, etc. I cannot even click and drag icons from the Start menu - just has a red X. I had to make a shortcut on the desktop to run PowerShell as an admin. It works on another Windows 10 machine no issues.
Wondering if anyone has any thoughts.
I don't have an answer for you.
Just want to offer an alternative if you do not want a desktop shortcut for it........
Right click at Start > Command Prompt (Admin|0 > type powershell > Enter
That is your Powershell Run As Admin.
I did a system restore back to nearly a month ago....and now it works. Wish I had an idea of what caused it. About to run updates again and see if it disappears again.
If you want to open PowerShell as administrator, instead of clicking it, press Ctrl+Shift+Enter, or hold Ctrl+Shift and click it.

I'm creating a custom image of Windows 10 Pro and am implementing my usual settings, programs and tweaks as I have with prior versions of Windows.
I'm sure I'll have a few other questions along the way as I complete this task but my main problem...
I have a bizarre problem that has crept up following the upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10, and that I that I can't save files off of the internet to the root of my C: or H: drives. I can save files to the roots of the other drives, and I can save files...
For whatever reason I have lost the use of my Start Menu and Search function. Is there any way to get the 'Settings' page open without the Start Menu?
Winkey + I did it.
