    I've written an article slash tutorial on how to use SuRun with a standard account in Windows 7 with temporary administrator privileges, similar to sudo concept in Linux, including setup & initial configuration, prerequisites, necessary user and group changes, real-life testing with installations and Windows updates, comparison to standard Windows privilege elevation prompts mechanism, other considerations, and more. Take a look.

    SuRun is an awesome little utility I've been using for years on my Win7 machine for elevating trusted programs from a user account.

    Unfortunately not fully working on Windows 10 x64. Installs and runs, but zero access to SuRun settings (whether through control panel or surun /setup) and therefore zero ways to elevate ant processes with SuRun. Also dramatically slows down UAC prompts.
