Run Commands

PowerShell: Use PowerShell instead of Command prompt when running the commands.

Run as Admin: Run PowerShell or Command prompt as Administrator.

Keep cmd terminal open after running: After running a specified command, this will leave the window open so the output is visible. The default is for the command to run in the background. Enabling this option will leave the window open.

Run command on “Enter” key press: Toggling this will allow agents to execute commands after clicking on ENTER, rather than clicking “Execute Command”.
