    Upgraded today from build 2004 to 20H2 ver 19042-870 and the previously inserted (open admin command window here ) in my context menu within desktop has disappeared ???? but still have right click (open command line here as admin ) within file background ???
    Has the new build overwritten previous added shortcuts .?? to desktop context menu

    When upgading to new build do i need to reinsert the shortcut shown at Brinks first post .
    It's not uncommon for an update to restore default settings.

    You can add the context menu back using the tutorial in the first post though.

    Open command window here as administrator - Add in Windows 10
    If you, like me, prefer to 'Shift+Open here' the command window as an administrator without getting greeted by the UAC prompt, then this might be for you. I also got annoyed by the little stroboscopic side effect resulting from how cmd /c start is used in various tutorials so, I went ahead and decided to apply old medicine─nothing too complicated.
    I included a README.txt file in the zip and added some additional brief comments in each file about how to set this all up right. At first I was going to write up a full-blown tutorial, but then I got lazy and bored so, please feel free to reply with your suggestions like possible improvements, questions, or other related remarks.

    • The .reg file wasn't working properly so it has now been corrected.
    • It now also includes the option to add Shift+Open command window here as standard user.
    • It now also includes the .reg files needed to remove these added keys from Windows registry.
