I want to enable Safe Mode in my Laptop and to do that I need to run Command Prompt as an administrator. But when I right click on command Prompt and select Run as Administrator, nothing happens. I tried this about 5 times with no results.
Please help me! :)

Try creating a fresh shortcut.
Right-click the desktop - New - Shortcut.
In text box, type cmd - then hit Next. Name it Elevated (so you know you've applied admin privileges).
Finish - Now right-click this shortcut - Properties - Shortcut - Advanced - check off "Run as Administrator" - OK

Try that out to see if it works for you.

Right click the Start Button in the bottom left corner of your desktop. There is a choice Command Prompt (admin). See if that works.
