Create a Shortcut to start Apps with Admin privileges with Powershell

The challenge

I want t be able to start some application with Admin privileges without the UAC nagg screen prompting. To accomplish this you need to create a task in the Windows Task Scheduler. One of the options is:

to Run with highest privileges. After you have created the task then you create a Shortcut where you start the Task with it’s name and the parameters /run /TN (taskname). Since I don’t like to do this over and over again manually, I have written a function which you can find below. Maybe you can use this as well.

If you found it useful or have something to add please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
