Sudo and Kill commands for Windows
« on: September 17, 2015, 04:53:31 AM »

I have to edit files / script which are in "\Program Files\" folder and need Administrative rights. Found SUDO useful as I can open the text editor via it in Administrative mode.

I already use SuperF4, still KILL can be useful from command line.

Regards,

Anand

If you just need to edit protected files every now and then, it's easier to launch your editor with administrative privileges - fastest way to do that is launching it with Ctrl+Shift+Enter from the start menu/screen (silly it doesn't work with Win+R).

If, on the other hand, you're often doing stuff in a console, have a look at ConEmu - it's pretty great, and also makes it easy to start a tab with an administrative shell.

Yes and also by right-click on taskbar icon I get administrative option. But I use SUDO from batch file to run a given program in administrative mode.
