To open a command prompt with administrator access under Windows 7 you can take the following steps:
- Click on the Windows Start button.
In the "Search programs and files" field type
- Right-click on cmd.exe and choose "Run as administrator". Provide a userid and password for an account in the administrators group when prompted.
Alternatively, you can open a command prompt with administrator
access from a command prompt you've opened from a standard user account
runas /user:administrator cmd.exe. Or you can
substitute the name of some other account with administrator access
instead of "administrator". Enter the password for the account
when prompted to provide it.
