Welcome to the repository for Sudo for Windows 🥪. Sudo for Windows allows users to run elevated commands directly from unelevated terminal windows.
Sudo is available for Windows 11 builds 26045 and later. If you're on an Insiders build with sudo, you can enable it in the Windows Settings app, on the "Developer Features" page.
Here you can report issues and file feature requests. We're in the process of open-sourcing the code, so stay tuned for more updates.
Obviously, everything about permissions and the command line experience is different between Windows and Linux. This project is not a fork of the Linux sudo project, nor is it a port of the Linux sudo project. Instead, Sudo for Windows is a Windows-specific implementation of the sudo concept.
As the two are entirely different applications, you'll find that certain elements of the Linux sudo experience are not present in Sudo for Windows, and vice versa. Scripts and documentation that are written for Linux sudo may not be able to be used directly with Sudo for Windows without some modification.
