Run as Administrator on Windows 7

When you are running application/services on window it is often painful to find out what's happening when the services don't start correctly. then you may decide to open a cmd shell and run the same commands to get more details. on windows 7 in some workplace environments you need a way to start these services with delegated administrator privileges. The way to do this is:

  1. click on start prompt
  2. in search for programs box enter "cmd"
  3. then hit "ctrl + shift + enter" 
  4. you get a prompt to  "do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer"
  5. select yes
  6. command shell now opens with admin privileges and you can run the services/application cmd or bat files without any issues.
