Shortcut to run Windows application as administrator

tips & tricks

In many case I need to run applications as administrator in Windows. Also I like pressing the Window button on the keyboard and start typing the name of the application.

The problem is to be able run the application as an administrator, I have to switch to the mouse. Right click on the name of the application and select Run As Administrator.

To avoid this I found this shortcut: Shift + Ctrl + Enter. This way it display the privilege escalation confirmation dialog and I can simly tab and press enter. So all this without reaching out to the mouse!
