Elevate the Session in the Web Rep Console

When a session starts in click-to-chat mode, only chat is available. If you wish to have access to more robust support features such as screen sharing, you must elevate the customer client.

Similarly, if the downloaded customer client is running in user mode, you may not have the depth of access you need. You can elevate the customer client to run with administrative rights, as a system service. Elevating the customer client enables switching user accounts, deploying Jump Clients in service mode, and controlling protected windows and UAC dialog boxes. Elevation does not change the user context of the active user and is not the same as logging out the active user and logging back in as an administrator.
