Microsoft introduces Sudo for Windows 11 to allow users to run elevated commands without opening a new console window.
- Sudo for Windows 11 is a new feature that enables users to execute commands with administrator privileges.
- It provides an ergonomic and familiar solution for elevating commands without the need for a separate elevated console window.
- Sudo for Windows comes with three options: running applications in a new elevated console window, running the elevated process in the current window with closed input stream, and inline mode.
- The feature is available for Windows 11 builds 26045 and later and can be enabled in the Settings > System > For Developers menu.
- Microsoft is open-sourcing the project on GitHub and encourages users to contribute and report issues.
