Launch Windows Admin Tools from the Command Line

You can access admin tools in Windows consoles instead of from the Start menu. But you can also open these console from the command line if you know their .msc filenames. This can be especially useful if you log on to your admin workstation using a limited privilege account and use Runas command to perform admin tasks.

Windows Admin Tools CMD

First we need to execute windows cmd, this is the shorcuts:

For normal prompt, follow these steps:

Input "cmd".
For elevated (administrator) prompt, follow these steps:
