I'd like to add an "Open with Notepad++ as Administrator" context menu for all files to Windows 7.

I've tried the solutions listed here: http://superuser.com/questions/56328/run-a-program-from-context-menu-with-admin-priveledges-vista-uac

with minimal success. I'm running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Does anyone have either more explicit instructions, or a different solution?

Thanks!

to do this i used 2 programs

1 - Elevate Power Toy : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2008.06.elevation.aspx

2 - Context Edit : http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/ContextEdit-Download-78704.html

first i downloaded elevate power toy and unziped it. after that in context edit (which you should run as admin too) i created a new entry and name it Notepad++ Admin

To new entry's command line write : "[Path]\Elevation\elevate.cmd" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" "%1"

after that you can see Notepad++ Admin on all items. i added screenshot for command options (actually nothing is selected).
