Control+Shift+Enter to launch a Windows program as admin!

To launch any Windows program with elevated (admin) privileges, hold Control+Shift keys, then double-click the program's icon, even on the taskbar.

Alternatively, hit the Windows key, type the program name, e.g. cmd then type Control+Shift+Enter to launch the program with elevated (admin) privileges. You might have to enter admin credentials in the UAC popup.

See this LifeHacker article for more details.
