So I use the WinKey + Number to launch programs from my taskbar a lot and I am wondering if I can get this keyboard shortcut to launch a certain program as an admin.

I do not want to left click on anything, it must be a keyboard shortcut only.

Ctrl + Shift + Win + Number launches your program as an administrator.
