Why running docker from cmd as administrator is not working?

(Aspring2) #1

It’s really odd. I’m able to run docker from a regular cmd shell, for instance,
docker run hello-world
However, when opening a cmd shell as Administrator, docker COMMANDS gives blank screen.
For instance,
docker version
returns nothing.

But I need to run cmd as administrator so that downloading docker images and installation etc. would not have permission issue.

Background info:
OS = Windows 10 Pro
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) enabled.
Docker for Windows installed and seem working
