Re: Running Commands with Admin Privilege

Yeah...I always just do that 9although I use powershell mostly)...
Lol the assisant was always called Cortana, and can be disabled. But for some reason windows-x occasionally doesn't get you to the menu...something to do with the taskbar maybe? In any case I don't worry about it -- run works every time, so long as explorer is up and running (if it's flaked out for some reason you can always use task manager...)

Martin, I find a *very* reliable, as in thus far foolproof, way to get to command prompt is by bringing up the run dialog (windows key + r) then typing cmd & pressing ctrl+shift+enter. This eliminates Kertonna unpredictabilities, or whatever MS calls its alleged assistant NOW.

Microsoft has always had the annoying, or blessed, depending on your
perspective, habit of giving you way multiple ways to achieve
precisely the same ends.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.
The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and
expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body. What you
do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
