How do I create an elevated cmd shortcut in Vista/LH?

Are you tired of alt-clicking the cmd icon and choosing "Run as administrator" 70 times a day?  Well I am.

Create a copy of cmd.exe in C:\Windows; rename it Elevatecmd.exe (or whatever) and set the Run As Administrator checkbox in Properties – Compatibility tab. The icon should show a shield icon after that, now you can just pin it to your start menu and you're good to go.
