How to edit and save text file as administrator?

This article explains the steps to open and modify text files, hosts files or files with extensions .xml, .conf etc… Generally you open the file, modify and then try to save it but it prompts you to “save as” instead of saving existing file.  (Mastering Windows Server 2012 R2)
Challenge here is to open a text file as administrator and modify the file but I couldn’t find the option to open text file with “run as administrator” option. 
(For steps to unhide files and folders on Windows 7 or Windows 2008 Server refer to “How to unhide files and folders in Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server systems”)
Solution is:

-          Open the notepad as “Run as administrator”

-          Then open the file which you intent to modify, here I would like to modify the .xml file

-          While opening file, select “all files” to show files with all extensions, select the file you want to modify and select Open

Then edit the file whatever you want and save the file. It should not doany drama now to save the file :-)
