Handy tip!

However, you could use the free 45k utility NirCmd.exe to do both of your F9 shortcuts. Plus your ZTree sYstem shortcut wouldn't have to be run from an already admin-elevated instance of ZTree since NirCmd can elevate it and run it as System all in one go.

F9 command line for your M (adMin) shortcut:

"#ZTTools\nircmd\nircmd.exe" elevate "#ZTHome\ztw64.exe" /T"**ADMIN MODE** " %2:%3

F9 command line for Y (sYstem) shortcut:

"#ZTTools\nircmd\nircmd.exe" elevatecmd runassystem "#ZTHome\ztw64.exe" /T"**SYSTEM MODE** " %2:%3

NirCmd (from the great Nir Sofer) is available from here:
