Save with admin rights

#1 Save with admin rights

Hi, Greetings to all forum users

I stopped using Notepad++ (it's however a good editor) because PSPad it's much better for me.
There is a plugin (Save as admin) for Notepad++ that allow you to modify files stored on Windows UAC protected folders because it makes possible the appearing of the UAC prompt when it needs.
It isn't a perfect solution because you can't save new files in protected folders but you can only modify already existing files.

I hope PSPad find a solution for ask UAC permissions when they are needed

Just now PSpad doesn't support this feature. If I need to modify úprotected files, I can always start PSPad as admin. This will elevate rights and you can modify your files.

Would love to see this.

I prefer PSPad to Notepad++ generally but always annoying when editing files in protected locations, eg (program files). Running as admin means right clicking on other files won't then open in PSPad. Also I always forget. Notepad++ will flag this when you try to save and automatically reopen in Admin mode. This works really well.

I would love to see PSPad do similar.

I will study what is necessary to do. In my opinion at least start new process with elevated priviledges what will save the file.
But I need to detect if the folder is protected (not read only like CD Rom) first.
