The Windows command line is very handy, but it's not particularly evident how to launch it with administrator privileges in Windows 8.1. Here's the simplest way to do that.
I needed a command prompt with administrator privileges recently, and realised there's no super-obvious way to do that. However, a quick Google search unearthed (via the How-To Geek) a simple and keyboard-friendly method:
- Type Windows-X to bring up the Windows 8.1 command menu.
- Choose "Command Prompt (Admin").
- That's it!
