Shell as Administrator?

P: 8
Hey all

I understand how the Shell feature works, a line like:
Shell("regedit.exe")

would start the registry editor. But, would it be possible to run it as administrator, rather than the local user? (I have the administrator password.)

Thanks!

By default SHELL executes as administrator.

You can also use shell to open any file as follows

[code=vb]Shell "notepad C:\test.txt", vbNormalFocus[/vb]
