That should be "not even when you are administrator and run it",
excuse the wrong wording, please.

You can of course right-click/run as administrator, but then you can't
open the file directly but first need to "File|open" and navigate to
it, which to me is more complicated than just saving elsewhere and
copying later.

You can of course also change registry so that Notepad always runs as
administrator, but that simply defeats an otherwise useful security
