If you just click "Continue" at the consent prompt, ie. do not have to enter
an admin password, you are already logged into an admin account. You can
check your account type in:
Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts
Run Notepad, or any other program, as administrator by right-clicking it's
shortcut, and select "Run as administrator" from the context menu.
