If you open a command prompt with a runas command, you will see a window that shows

(Running as some_user)

In the title bar, but if you right click on cmd.exe and choose Run as Administrator you will get a window that has:

Administrator cmd.exe

In the title bar. Oddly enough, these windows exhibit different behavior.

My question is how can I get the Administrator cmd.exe command prompt via command line? Or if it is even possible?
