Windows 8: Add Run as Administrator to the Context Menu for MSI files

This is an older but goodie that Shawn Brink (@Shawn_Brink_MVP) posted for Windows 7.

If you click the link above you can download the registry files or follow these steps to create and execute the .reg files.

To Add “Run As Asministrator”

  • Open up notepad
  • Copy the following code in it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



  • Save the file with the .reg extension
  • right click the newly created file and select merge (or just double click on it).
  • Click Yes to the UAC prompt
  • You are done and should not have ‘Run as Administrator’ for the context menu for MSI files.

To Remove “Run As Asministrator”

  • Run the same steps as above except use this code.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    Three and a fifty percent many years later, I’m nonetheless a pleased consumer. The fact that Google Voice is free turns out to be only a secondary part of its appeal — it’s all the issues it does to help me remain effective that make it a keeper.

    The very best part about these get virtual sms number methods? Theyre inexpensive and easy-to-use. Business telephone systems are expensive and dont provide you with the functionality you need. As a photographer on the go, you require an inexpensive answer that doesn’t need tons of work to set up. You just want to get phone calls and go!

    You get lots of great, free attributes and choices for performing/managing a lot more including a lot more than the web and it’s SO a lot less expensive (at minimum it is for me!). Being the ‘average man’ I am, I don’t truly use all the features. Fortunately, it’s fairly much a ‘set it up and forget about it’ type factor except that I conserve $40+/month w/ it!

    The next piece to spluge on for your office or house is the camera. There are a number of fantastic cameras for $99 to $499. The Apple(tm) digital camera for the mac appears remarkably like the professional quality computer digital camera from Polycom(tm). I use the Logitech(tm) pro sequence and they function great. Every pc in our workplaces has one.

    One factor most people hate about moving into a new house is not the hard labor of lifting boxes all working day lengthy; it’s having to call the telephone company to disconnect and reconnect their telephone services. It’s a trouble and there are always charges related. Simply because VoIP is connected to a higher-speed web link and not the conventional land line, it becomes nearly as portable as a cell phone. Essentially, customers can consider their phone quantity anywhere they transfer; and even if it’s just for a weekend getaway.

    From that stage duplicate the file more than to your Kindle via USB, use ES File Explorer to launch the installer (I formerly understood how to use ES File Explorer in YouWave, but I apologize, I completely forgot exactly where it was saved).
