How to Run Windows Software as Administrator

With the increase in security risks, Windows has been beefing up it's security check-points in recent years. Nowadays, even if your Windows user account have administration, it doesn't mean that you will automatically perform every task with administration privileges. For example, when you run a Windows program, you don't automatically execute it as an administrator. But when the software needs the special privilege, it will fail.

In those cases, you need to explicitly execute the software with administrator privilege. That's pretty easy to do once you know how (assuming you have administration privileges in the first place). Simply right click on the short-cut or the program executable. That produces a pop-up menu (see screen shot below). Now, click on "Run as administrator" to start it with the elevated privilege.
