    You might look in the Tutorials section of this forum for that information, at least I'm sure I saw it there.

    Ok Brink got it. Phew, I was looking all over the dang settings and I guess I missed it. Next step is to pin it to start menu.

    Command Prompt is already in the Start menu, it's in 'All apps' under 'Windows System'. You could pin this to start. A right-click then lets you choose run as administrator in 'More >'.
