A. You can usually start a program with elevated privileges by right-clicking the application and selecting "Run as Administrator" from its context menu. Alternatively, you can start an application from the Search menu and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to execute in elevated mode. For example, in Search, type cmd (for command prompt), and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter. You'll be prompted to confirm to run with elevated credentials and when you do, you'll have an elevated command prompt.
