Sometimes in Windows 7 you need a program to have adminster rights to open certain files or be able to save to certain locations. But some files don't have a "Run as Administrator" shortcut when you right click to open them. Did you know they actually do?
In Windows 7 the easiest way to temporarily give a program admin rights is to right click the program's shortcut and choose "run as administrator". But some programs when right clicked don't have "run as adminsitrator" as an option!
What do you do then? Well you can go to the shorcut's properties and check a box to make it run as administrator, but then you have to remember to go back and un-check the box to make it run normally again. And that's a lot of clicks.
But right click the same shortcut while you hold down shift and the "Run as Administrator" link magically appears.
