Hello,

My command prompt runs as admin OK when i right-click it and click Run As
Administrator. Is that what you are talking about?

The RunAs administrator will not elevate the command. You have to elevate
the entire Command prompt to get it to run in the context of administrator.

Certainly seems to be an omission, since it requires you go back to the
mouse simply to run a single command every time you want to do anything
admin related (the alternative being to run the cmd.exe elevated which
defeats the point of UAC). I expected a start /administrator command
or something like that.
