Run As Administrator.
How do I run a specific file as an administrator?
For example TEST.txt
What exactly do you mean by run a file?
When doing one of the above mentioned actions, the process needs to
have the proper rights to do so. In case of executing and saving there
are workarounds to have an unprivileged process doing this by using
tools like runas and plugins like SaveAsAdmin, which themself
will spawn a new process with the proper rights.
When trying to open a file for reading it isn’t that easy, afaik.
You can start npp with an administrative account but this means
all of your files opened/saved do get treated with the privilege.
I have a file called “RunScript_Notepad++.ahk”.
I added the script to the menu > Run > Run… F5
But it works only if I go - NotePad++.exe > Right-click > Properties > Compatibility > Run this program as administrator
How do I set up the
administratorrights only for this file❓
You would, for example, use runas.
In run menu, you would call
cmd /k runas /user:YOUR_NAME@YOUR_HOST PROGRAM_TO_EXECUTE
Once everything works as expected, you can substitute /k with /c and
the cmd shell gets closed automatically.
