Windows 10 How to Run as Administrator

By Creaky · May 29, 2016 ·

    Over the years, Microsoft has improved the security of Windows by restricting the default permissions that some applications run with. Many applications will prompt you if they require elevated privileges, but sometimes if you get an access denied or permission error (or are using older software) you may need to run it with administrative permissions.

    By far the easiest way to run software as an administrator is to right click the shortcut or application executable and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.


    Once you have clicked this option, you'll be presented with a dialog box that asks "Do you want to allow this application to make changes to your PC?". Click Yes to run the application as an administrator.
