Once the WinRAR application appears in the search results, right-click on it and select “Run as administrator” from the context menu. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, enter the password or provide confirmation to continue.
Note that you will need to have administrator privileges on your computer to be able to run WinRAR as an administrator. If you do not have administrator privileges, you will not be able to run WinRAR as an administrator. In this case, you may need to contact your system administrator or the person who set up your computer to request administrator privileges.
Few additional things you might want to know about running WinRAR as an administrator:
- When you run WinRAR as an administrator, it will have access to all the files and directories on your computer, including those that are normally protected by the operating system. This can be useful if you need to extract or modify a file that is located in a protected location, but it also means that you need to be careful when using WinRAR with administrator privileges, as you could potentially cause damage to your system if you are not careful.
- Running WinRAR as an administrator can also be useful if you are experiencing errors or problems with the application that you are unable to resolve by running it as a normal user. In some cases, running WinRAR as an administrator may allow you to bypass these errors and use the application as intended.
- If you regularly need to run WinRAR as an administrator, you can create a shortcut for the application that will always run it as an administrator. To do this, right-click on the WinRAR icon and select “Properties” from the context menu. In the Properties window, go to the Shortcut tab and click on the “Advanced” button. In the Advanced Properties window, check the box next to “Run as administrator” and click “OK” to save the changes. From now on, whenever you use this shortcut to launch WinRAR, it will run as an administrator.
