    I am trying to do something in the control panel app that appears to requite administrator privileges. I revived the administrator account in Windows 10 but nothing in the resulting account works - particularly the "Start" button which does absolutely nothing when clicked on with either the left or right mouse button. So it would appear that I need to run the control panel from an elevated TCC session in my normal user account (I know how to do that) but I don't know how to run the control panel program once I am there.

    Here,
    Code:
    c:\windows\system32\control.exe
    works from TCC, elevated or not. (I don't really need the full path.)

    Here's another example which opens a particular Control Panel item.
    Code:
    control /name Microsoft.DateAndTime
    [Google "Canonical Names Control Panel Items"]
    You can also open some CP items via their .CPL file; for example
    Code:
    control timedate.cpl
