How to open an elevated command prompt in Windows 7?

To open an elevated command prompt in Windows 7; type "cmd" without quotes on the search box.

And from the search result, select "cmd" right click on it.

And on the pop up window select "Run as administrator".

If you are logon without administrative rights, system will prompt for the username and password.

Username and password are the credentials for the administrator account.

If you are using a home version of Windows 7, then you can only specify the local administrator account.

See image below, on how to open an elevated command prompt.

After clicking on "Run as administrator", it will open a command prompt window. And on the top left corner of the window "Administrator" account is displayed, to indicate that the command prompt is running on an elevated prompt.

If  a commands needs an elevation, it will not be able to execute. It will prompt such as 'This command requires an elevation'.

For example, if you type "netsh int ip reset" on a command prompt window that is not elevated, it will display this message below:

Reseting Global, failed.
The requested operation requires elevation (Run as administrator).
Reseting Interface, failed.

That is just an example; there are other commands that requires elevation.
