I'm trying to use Method 3 from this tutorial about elevating priviledges
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-elevated-command-prompt/
All I want is to elevate TCPview and ProcessExplorer so that I can get to those very quickly without the need to allow.
1. I do have TCPview shortcut on the left side of the taskbar, but there is no right-click option for properties.
2. Process explorer is triggered from clicking the task bar and selecting Task Manager.

Can someone help me, please?

You would need to apply the changes to the exe file not the shortcut!

I originally did it for TCPview.exe and that didn't work. Pinned - didn't work - no Properties there. Came here for the tutorial, and, please note, I found Method 3 which describes the shortcut method. That doesn't work. I went through users permissions, gave it full control, just like for Admin - still no go.

 

At one point I told the UAC alert to "Change how these notifications appear" and set it very low. That was a disaster because it's not program-specific but global. Useless.

 

No matter what I do, UAC asks if to allow TCPview ... and I have to click Yes, and by now the event I wanted to catch is gone.

 

I suspect that SRP via gpedit.msc might be used as on XP. But I'm so unfamiliar with Windows7 that at this point I'm not comfortable messing with things like that.

 

ProcessExplorer is slightly different. There is no shortcut, and I need to follow it up some more. Speed here is sometimes important but not always.

YES :) :)
Not sure I like that, as the pink note says, it can only be used when running in account that has admin rights, but it works very well.
For now I'm leaving ProcessExplorer alone.
Thank you!
