Did you launch the Notepad as a administrator?

I am on an admin account with full rights. Should I still be launching Notepad as an admin ?

Did launch notepad as admin but could not view win firewall log files
Did copy and paste on the desktop (log files). From notepad (as admin), open the log files. I can now view the logs.
Very cumbersome. Is it normal behavior ?

You can use the attached batch script to add a context menu option to take ownership of the log file.
