How to open an elevated command prompt from a standard account?

Working in a fast pace environment, will need to get things done quickly to do other tasks that needs to be done also.
Opening a command prompt in a standard user account without signing off and without logging off is possible with the “runas” utility command in Windows environment.
Open the run box and type “cmd”, to open the command prompt window.
Then type:
Runas /user:admin_account cmd
It will ask for a password, if authentication is valid then a new command prompt window will open in an elevated mode. Command works from Windows 7+  version.
That’s it, you just open an elevated command prompt window in a user standard account. Since most users are hungry with the admin password, just watch out with the shoulder sniffing tactic.

Other useful admin commands in a windows environment:
If ever you have a custom local admin account name and you can’t remember, type: net users
It will display all the local user accounts.
To check domain name and current login user account name, type:

Ping IPv4 or IPv6 in Windows 10

Windows 7 and newer releases of Windows supports ping results of either IPv4 or IPv6.

If the remote PC or server is configured for both IPv4 and IPv6, and if you need to ping via hostname and you want to get an IPv4 address type the command below:

ping -4 -n 2 Dhoney_Srv

Output will be IPv4 address of the hostname

ping -6 -n 2 Dhoney_Srv

Output will be IPv6 address of the hostname.

-n 2 send two ICMP packet requests.

Cheers! Till next time.
