    Run as administrator (Vista Home Premium)

    Sometimes Vista required administration privileges to run a program - even though I am logged in a Administrator. How am I suppose to acheve this, I have enabled the run command on the menu but right clicking this does not give me admin privileges. Any ideas?

    Right click on the program shortcut (or the .exe file itself) and select "Run as administrator".

    Re: Run as administrator (Vista Home Premium)

    To ALWAYS run as administrator do the following start menu keyboard trick:

    If you use the search box in the new Start Menu in Windows Vista as a run box, you can run any command you type in as an administrator by holding down CTRL + Shift and then pressing Enter.

    Say you want to start command prompt as administrator:

    Click start button
    Key in cmd
    Press and hold down CTRL and Shift and then hit Enter
    Command prompt now be run as administrator
