Send to Notepad as Admin

As an administrator, how often do you open a config file located in a protected directory, like \Windows or \Program Files, edit it, then hit save and get this lovely message? There is a pretty easy workaround for this, however it will require you to think about how you open the file before you actually open it. Type “shell:sendto” into an explorer address bar. You will end up at “%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo”
