Windows users can now use the Run command to launch programs and various administrative tools with Administrator privileges.
There are a number of methods to start a program as an Administrator in Windows 10. It may be easier to type the program name in the search bar on the taskbar and then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter.
Another is to enter the name of the program in the search field or Start, right-click on the name of the program and then click on "Run as administrator".
In addition to the methods mentioned above, there is a new way to run programs as an administrator in Windows 10 from version 1803. After the last major Windows update launched by 10 April 2018, users can use the Run command to launch programs as administrators.
To start a program as an administrator using the Run command, just type the executable name of the program in the Run command and then press the Ctrl, Shift, and Enter keys (Ctrl + Shift + Enter) at the same time.
Despite the new method, we consider that starting a program as an administrator is easy using the "Start" menu, as you can enter the name of the program and then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter. While using the Run Command, you may not be able to start a program by simply typing its name. Most of the built-in programs and popular third-party programs can be started by typing in their names, but they are not always the names of the programs themselves with the name of their executable files. For example, to start Office Word, you must type "WinWord" or "WinWord.exe" instead of the name "Office Word" or "Word".
However, we now have a new way of running programs as an administrator in Windows 10.
