Need help with the instructions in this article. I think I missed something


#1

I wanted to run a program as an admin without receiving a prompt and found this tutorial on here. I followed all of the directions exactly, or at least I’m pretty sure I did… yet when I try to launch the shortcut and it asks me for the password, I am unable to type anything. It acts like my keyboard is broken or something. The only key that works is the Enter key.

What am I doing wrong for it to behave this way?

It’s supposed to ask you for the password – which you need to provide – the first time around. But strange that you are unable to type anything from your keyboard aside from “enter”??
