I would love to be able to run admin-only commands from an existing open Windows terminal session. The way I'd like it to work would be to convert the existing non-admin session into an admin session. I want to be able to preserve the command history so the up arrow still works to redo prior executed commands, just as an administrator. Adding a prefix or opening a new window wouldn't solve that problem for me.

I do prefer PowerShell to the Linux equivalents, so I'm less concerned about making it work just like Linux and carrying over those limitations. But if they are implementing it with options, then they can ensure it works for both Linux admins doing a little bit in Windows and also for MS admins who are currently simply frustrated with needing to open a separate admin window when a particular PowerShell command is not possible to run in the existing window.
