    Try the location below for creating the shortcut with instead. Substitute the part in red for the task name in your Microsoft\My Tasks folder.

    schtasks /run /tn "Microsoft\My Tasks\Registry Editor"

    Yes, that works great!
    I did actually try that path, only without the quotation marks which I think is why it wouldn't work.
    Nevertheless it works as intended now, I can't thank you enough for your help, keep it up the great work, you are a credit to this community!

    I modified my registry in order to call mklink from cmd. However it seems that this option does not work as described and I still get "You do not have sufficient privilege to perform this operation".

    Hello tolisss, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Are you using an elevated command prompt to run the mklink command from?

    Hi Brink,

    Thnks for the link however it is really inconvenient since all options require to use the mouse. This post 10 option describes a way to run any app as admin from anywhere by modifying the registry so it should work from cmd but it does not

    again thanks for the link however this still is not satisfying. What I want is to run cmd from everywhere. For example you navigate to a folder using windows explorer and press Alt+D and then cmd to open a console to the current dir. How to elavate that console.

    You could make a shortcut C:\Windows\cmd.lnk and set it to run C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe elevated. It is higher in your path so is invoked by default when you type cmd in explorer.

    Edit - sorry, it doesn't always get picked up - depends where explorer is open.

    This below will give you a Open Command Window Here as Administrator context menu that will hopefully help.
