Since I’m often using Windows Command Prompt(CMD), I also often need to run it as an administrator. This is mostly due to permission issues some applications I run may have. That’s fairly simple thing to do.
- Type CMD in Windows 10 Cortana(search box in the taskbar)
- Type cmd
- Right click on the Command Prompt(in results)
- Click Run As Adminstrator.
This is fairly easy solution, but since I’m using it often, I needed a way to pin this to the Windows taskbar, and make sure it’s run as Administrator. Also, by default, when running CMD with administrator privileges, default directory path is C:\Windows\System32\, which I also wanted to change to my Projects folder. In order to do this, I needed to hack your way through Windows 10, to make sure I don’t spend much time for such trivial tasks.
