Pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER in the Run dialog box

If at any time you need to run a program with administrative privileges, like running Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell as an administrator, press WINDOWS LOGO + R, type the name of a program, and then press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER. For example, you would type "cmd" (without the quotation marks) in the Run dialog box (normally, pressing WINDOWS LOGO + R opens the Run dialog box), and then press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER to run Command Prompt as administrator. NOTE: Pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER in the Run dialog box was introduced in Windows 10 April 2018 Update and works on newer Windows 10 versions.
