is there any ‘Sudo’ command for windows ?

I want to run a console program in Windows, but it required administrative privileges. So, I can right click the command prompt to run as administrator, but I want to use something from the command line to elevate the program.

Is there something like sudo in Windows?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Or use runas, supplied with Windows:

Runas /user:administrator notepad

Or you can have a batch file (say myrunas.bat) that contains:

Runas /user:administrator %*

%* means "all parameters".
Used, for example, as:

myrunas notepad
