    I'd like to be able to have a new tab contain Powershell, but running as admin.
    Anyone know a trick to make that work?
    Thanks --

    Do you mean Admin or Elevated? (They're not the same thing.)

    There isn't a way to start an elevated TCMD tab window from a non-elevated TCMD. Doing that would require injecting a dll into every new process; something that I'm reluctant to do. (It gets my software flagged as malware by many antivirus & antimalware apps, and ensuring it'll work with a few hundred million apps is a compatibility nightmare.)
