How To Run Apps In Admin Mode From The Run Box On Windows 10 [Guide] | |
There's more than one way to open an app on Windows 10. You can run an EXE file, run a shortcut to the EXE file, open it from a pinned tile on the Start menu, open it from the apps list, or you can use the Run box. If you want to run an app with administrative rights, the easiest way to do it is via the EXE or a shortcut to the EXE. You can right-click it and select the 'run as administrator' option. The same works for apps that you can find via Windows search. That said, if these options aren't viable for some reason i.e. you have a feature that isn't working/responding, the run box is always a safe bet. By default, when you open an app via the run box, it opens with normal rights. To open apps in admin mode from the run box, you need to modify the keyboard key you use to open it.This works on all apps whether it's the Windows Registry or a browser. You must know what EXE to run in order to open an app.Admin Mode From The Run BoxOpen the run box
