Many utilities need to be run as administrator in order to function properly, especially older utilities that haven’t been updated to support Windows 7 or Vista yet.

All shortcuts in Windows since Vista have a special property that you can set that will allow the application to run as Administrator.

To set this property, just right-click on any shortcut, and click the Advanced button on the Shortcut page to get to the Advanced Properties dialog.

You’ll see a dialog with a checkbox for “Run as administrator”. Check on it.

From now on, the application will always run as administrator if you use the shortcut to launch it.
