Have you ever tried to run a command and got a message saying “The requested operation requires elevation”?
This is a function of the the Windows Vista UAC or User Account Control. It can be turned off but, that makes things less secure.
This program allows you to run programs from with start menu search box with escalated permissions.
For example, I do a lot in the command line so I run “sudo cmd” and a command prompt window is launched with escalated privileges.
The program also allows you to customize “startlets” so that applications or web pages can be launched from the start menu search bar.
