Shortcut to launch with admin privileges?

tip: ShellExecute using the "RunAs" verb. Not properly documented and feels hacky, but that's the UAC API for you, I guess :(

As I recall, RunAs (in Shell & ShellExecute) was an option back in Win2k, it just never caught on because everybody just ran as Admin back then.

It was?

Thing is, the undocumented "RunAs" UAC thing in ShellExecute doesn't take any user credentials - so imho it's extremely misnamed.

Hi is there a way to pass the username and password to the /runsasadmin switch automatically?

there is no way currently, but it's an interesting idea.

Stoic Joker:
Well... While I was beating the web bushes for a bit more elegant solution to the SetSystemTime debacle (hehe) I ran across this tutorial series that looks to be right about what you're after (Replete with Code Samples):

Asking the User for Credentials

Done, implemented in v 2.80.01; hold ctrl+shift when triggering an item to run as admin; for alias results you can also indicate a result should be run as admin with /runasadmin option.

ps. thanks for the tip f0dder.  :up:

This seems to work when triggering an item using Ctrl+Shift+Enter, but it doesn't seem to work for Ctrl+Shift+Numpad #. Is this not how it's implemented (and I'm just doing it wrong), or is it supposed to work?
