How to set Run as Administrator on the Start icons?
I'm a developer and many of the tools I need I have to run as administrator. Going through the Start/ select icon/ select more/ select Run as Administrator rain dance causes me problems. I was hoping for something like setting the Advanced/Properties check box on might be available for start icons as well.Why would you do that?? Do you mean permanently or just once??
the "run as administrator" option has system wide privileges and I am talking about root privileges which opens every door on your system for malware.
Unless I did not quite get what you mean....
I agree, some programs need those privileges to run properly but this will only be on demand and in certain situations. If you want to run an app with admin privileges, you can right click on the Icon and click on [run as administrator]. Not all apps have this option, only app which are needed to run the system....
That only works for programs that you installed yourself. This does not apply to the apps Windows 10 has by default.Finally found it. Here is the Rx
Permanently run Program as an administrator
- Navigate to the program folder for the program
- Right-click the program icon (the .exe file).
- Choose Properties.
- On the Compatibility tab, select the Run This Program As An Administrator option.
- Click OK.
- Keep User Account Control happy.
- Don't keep relearning this fact...
