[Wishlist] Open applications with enhanced rights on-demand

From Horst:

As QAP knows how to open applications with enhanced rights, it should be possible to open a normal application favorite with enhanced rights by using a keyboard modifier like Shift-click on the favorite. This would eliminate the need for additional favorites with enhanced rights option set.

  • I would like to implement it for v8. This would take the form of a new item in the Alternative Menu (Shift+Middle Button), named "Run in elevated mode (admin)".

    I could not use Shift+Click because it is already for "Open in a new window". Also, Ctrl+Click is used for "Copy location" and Shift+Control+Click for "Edit favorite". Alt key could not be used because it closes the active menu. I don't remember if I tried the Windows key as a modifier. I'll check this.

    The other option would be to config a QAP feature shortcut in Options (2nd tab).

    Thanks for this idea, Horst.

  • Done in v8.1.
