Step 1: Access Command Prompt Properties
The first step is to access the properties of Command Prompt. You can do this by searching for “Command Prompt” in the Windows search bar, right-clicking on the app, and selecting “Properties” from the dropdown menu.
Step 2: Open Advanced Properties
Once you have accessed the Command Prompt Properties, click on the “Advanced” tab. From there, check the box that says “Run as administrator” and click “OK” to save changes.
Step 3: Confirm Changes
To confirm that the changes have been made, close Command Prompt and then reopen it. You should see a message asking for permission to run the app as an administrator. Click “Yes” to confirm.
Step 4: Create a Shortcut
To simplify the process, you can create a shortcut on your desktop that will always run Command Prompt with administrative rights. To do this, right-click on the Command Prompt app and select “Create shortcut.” Then, right-click on the shortcut and select “Properties.”
Step 5: Edit Shortcut Properties
In the shortcut properties, click on the “Advanced” tab and check the box that says “Run as administrator.” Click “OK” to save changes.
Step 6: Use the Shortcut
Now, every time you need to use Command Prompt with administrative rights, simply double-click on the shortcut you created. You will no longer need to right-click and select “Run as administrator” every time.
Step 7: Troubleshooting
If you are still having issues running Command Prompt with administrative rights, try restarting your computer and rechecking the settings. If the issue persists, try running a virus scan or contacting technical support for further assistance.
