    Hi @Aloe Z ,

    this is not dependet on whether or not you are an Admin on the system, it is just how the behavior is by design - cmd (and also other programs) start by default in a non-admin mode, but can also be started as an Admministrator. I personaly always use the "Ctril + Shift + Enter" to start it directly as an admin, but this is not what you are looking for. I think this will help you achieve your goal:

    How To Open Command Prompt Always In Administrative Mode

    The article shows different methods of achieving this, but the most suitable would be Method 2 - settings up the "RUNASADMIN" key.

    I hope I could help you out!
