    also unfortunately, it doesn't give the option to open as administrator. The run dialog box use to have a "will run as administrator" or some such wording, but even then it didn't trigger UAC which is the only proof I'd have I'd be going into elevated mode ...

    Yep... you can always run PowerShell from File menu as admin and enter "cmd"...

    Thank you for the quick reply :)

    Any ideas? :)

    hi Brink, thank you for your help.
    I decided to add cmd with rClick & cmd/adm with shift-rClick.
    Both worked like a charm after translated them.
