Linux’s sudo command to be available on Windows 11: Microsoft

Developers will soon have access to a built-in sudo command in the upcoming Windows 11. This sudo command, which stands for “superuser do,” is commonly utilized on Unix-based operating systems such as Linux and macOS to execute programs with elevated security privileges or on behalf of another user. Its functionality proves valuable for developers seeking to conduct script testing and similar tasks.

Microsoft is ready to give the opportunity to developers to use sudo command to run inside the Windows. Developers can elevate a program without first opening a new elevated console.
