You can execute a number of tasks on your Windows computer by running commands. These commands work great. Some people also try to execute a number of these commands one by one. This bulk execution of commands helps them get greater output. But writing and executing these commands one by one manually takes a lot of time.
To counter this, Microsoft has added a feature of running Batch files on their operating systems. These batch files are also run by a number of software in the background to execute multiple tasks. But if you are running an independent script, you might need administrator-level privileges to execute them. This is what we are going to talk about in the guide.
If you wish to Run a batch file as an Administrator one time, simply right-click on the batch file that you wish to run and select Run as Administrator.
It will start executing that batch file with administrator rights.
