Run the script on newly created instance window RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to run the below script with admin rights,

    $Threshold = -90
    $UserProfileFolders = Get-ChildItem "$($env:SystemDrive)\Users" | ? { $_.LastAccessTime -lt ((Get-Date).AddDays($Threshold)) } | Select Name,FullName,LastAccessTime
    $WmiUserProfiles = Get-WmiObject Win32_UserProfile 
    $WmiUserProfiles | % {
        if (($UserProfileFolders | Select -Expand FullName) -contains $_.LocalPath) {

    if run the below command on powershell, it would open the new window with admin rights,

    Start-Process powershell -Verb runAs

    But i want to run the above script on that newly opened window through scripting itself without manually copying and pasting it on the new window

    Could you please provide some insights how to do it?

  • Thanks, can i append the script directly instead of passing it through .ps1 file ?

  • Best to use a file.
