    I haven't tried it. But intuitively it seems if you click Start > All
    Programs, right-click Command Prompt, and choose Run As Administrator, you
    should be good to go. I think you'll be a system Admin rather than a member
    of the Local Admins group.

    Elevation from Command Line?

    Hey there, anyone know how to run a command from CMD in elevated mode (or
    whatever it's called..!)

    For example, how would I run SFC /SCANNOW with elevated permissions direct
    from the command line? I can't be bothered with doing all the
    create-a-shortcut-and-tick-those-boxes things...

    Create a shortcut to cmd.exe and in the properties pick Always run as
    administrator. Whenever you run this shortcut it will be elevated.

    Thanks K - yup someone gave me this one earlier.

    I'm most interested in knowing how to elevate from just one command tho - it
    also seems to me to be the safer option, especially, for example, if you're
    doing it from a command line batch script, or something...
