    Rune regedit for non-admin user


    Somehow my ToastNotifications got switched off. Need to have admin privileges to switch it back on. Running regedit as Administrator doesn't work. Have a .reg file, but that has to be double-clicked, so no privileges. Can't set Properties ... Run as Administrator for a .reg file.

    Short of making my profile and Administrator, running regedit and then switching my profile back again, is there a way to do this?

    Don't you have Merge on the regfile rt click context menu? Run cmd.exe as admin regedit /s <path_to_regfile>

    Why not?

    Can't you run regedit as administrator and then go to File > Import and select your .reg file?
