Running a command as Admin

Or how to run a command with elevated privileges on Windows.

Tried to run a chkdsk this morning via a Windows account that wasn’t in the Administrators group and found out that I couldn’t do so. This was when I chanced, by searching t’internet, upon the Control (Ctrl), Shift and Enter magic key combination, never heard of this! Using these keys, instead of just Enter, runs the selected command with Admin privileges, fab!
