Did you know, in Microsoft Windows 7 there’s a shortcut to start an application elevated. Just press ctrl-shift and double click on the application icon and it will prompt you for elevation. i think this is a nice and handy feature!
I don’t know, and can’t test it a the moment – my systems are all upgraded to Microsoft Windows 7 – if this shortcut is also available in Windows Vista. Maybe one could write a comment and confirm whether this shortcut is available in Microsoft Windows Vista or not.
