Run Powershell.exe As Administrator Installer for Windows 10+


Force Powershell.exe to run as Administrator Installer for Windows 10+

This script installs "Powershell.exe Run as Admin Win 10" which will force any command line innovation of Powershell.exe to announce a UAC pop-up asking to run as Administrator privileges. This copies the current default Powershell.exe location to C:\Windows\Powershell.exe, to become new default Powershell cmd. It's a , cheap way to monitor invocation of scripts from some rogue/hack attempts that uses default powershell.exe command to launch scripts.




Setting Privileged Level is not accessible otherwise via Properties window in these default Windows 10+ directories;

  • x64 DIRECTORY - C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\ 
  • x32 DIRECTORY - C:\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
