How do I Elevate my priviledges in Winre RRS feed

  • Question


  • I cannot login to Win 10, even in safe mode. To remedy the issue I need to run msconfig from the recovery command prompt. However, I'm alerted that I don't have enough privileges to do so. How do I use the recovery command prompt as an admin? Thanks.

  • msconfig is a Windows utility, so would not expect that to run in a command environment. What is the exact error you get?

    Can you elaborate on the Windows 10 issue some more perhaps we can advise on that?

    What are you trying to achieve in msconfig, perhaps that can be done another way with the command prompt.
