As the question says how would I start a application as admin when using Windows 7's search box. This must be done using the keyboard only , I tried Shift + Enter and ctrl + Enter , both don't seem to have any effect.

  • Hit Windows-key, type some program name, Ctrl-Shift-Enter, confirm UAC - Voilà! This is my favorite feature of Windows Vista/7! I never go looking in the All Programs menu anymore! :)
