The User Access Control Protocol is a great feature to protect the integrity of system files in the Windows operating system. It is because of this security protocol that users require administrative rights to access some Windows features.
Sometimes, when you try to access some files on your computer, you may see an access denied warning if the required administrative permission is not provided. This permission is basically required to access and modify system files that are otherwise restricted to users with basic privileges.
However, if you want to run File Explorer with administrator rights, we’ll walk you through the process in detail.
Typically, the Windows operating system grants users basic privilege to work with files and folders within the system. However, if you want to delve deeper into system files and modify, delete, replace, or anything else, you need administrative rights.
The administrator basically has three permissions in Windows; read, write and execute. So running as administrator grants you these permissions.
You want to run as administrator for these specific purposes:
Administrator privileges allow you to enter restricted corners of the system. That is why it is a risky business to have access to this right all the time. However, if you want to make some system-level changes to your computer, you need to get this access.
During the time you need to get these permissions for File Explorer, here are some of the methods you can follow:
File Explorer has its main executable inside the system partition of your Windows device. You can use this file to run it as administrator. To do this, follow these steps:
Task manager is a useful tool to manage the application running on the system. Used to create a new task and run it with administrator privileges. To run File Explorer as an administrator using Task Manager, follow these steps:
explorer.exe. Also, make sure you’ve checked the “Create this task with administrative privileges” Box.
Alternatively, you can also do this using the Run dialog box,
explorer.exeand hit Ctrl + Exchange + come in.
You can even use the command prompt to give file explorer administrative privileges.
Here are the steps:
cmdin the field and then press Ctrl + Exchange + come in.
You can even use PowerShell to run File Explorer as an administrator. To do this follow these steps:
Powershell. And then press again Ctrl + Shift + Return.
taskkill /f /FI "USERNAME eq $env:UserName"/im explorer.exe
C:\Windows\explorer.exe /NOUACCHECKand hit come in. File Explorer will now open as an administrator.
To do this, press Win + R and type
useraccountcontrolsettings. In the UAC settings, slide down the notification settings Never warn and click on Okay to save the changes. This will disable the confirmation notification while running as administrator.
For Windows Server 2016/2019, the above steps work. However, on Windows Server 2012, open an elevated command prompt window and enter this command.
taskkill explorer.exe & explorer
