I'm running XP Home in a limited user account. Some games require me to run in an Admin account. Hence, I right click the applicable start menu shortcut (icon) and select "Run as..." which solves the problem.
I wonder if it's possible to change the shortcut's (icon) target (right click shortcut, properties, "Shortcut" tab) so I can directly enter the Admin username/password? This will save me a few clicks.
Here's a sample of COD2's shortcut target: "C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\cod2sp_s.exe"
Please demonstrate answer by modifying COD2's target. Thanks.
