ELE – elevated command prompt

ELE is the simple elevation utility for command prompt. It allows you to re-open already opened Command prompt and keeps current path.

Usually if you open command prompt with Administrator's rights from Start Menu, you have to type cd command to change location from Windows directories to your desired location. It is very annoying if you have already opened command prompt in folder you need. ELE saves your time and re-opens your current command prompt , just type "ele".
