    Windows 10 x64 & x86


    I have the same problem with a system program (Taskmgr.exe, looks like 'C:\Windows\system32\taskmgr.exe /7' in its regular shortcuts -- not sure what '/7' does but couldn't get a command line options for taskmgr.exe). When I do a Properties on it, there's no Details tab, so I can't tell if it needs or set it to have Admin privileges -- my UAC settings cause a confirmation window when an app needs that, and that doesn't come up with Task Manager, so I'd say no if I needed to pick one.

    I tried the method from 'miken' involving the .bat file, but both when I launch the .bat file manually and when it's launched during the startup, it just brings up a command prompt with the current directory set to the Startup folder, doesn't seem to do anything else.

    As far as the response from Kanata, there is no Startup under Start → All Programs (I find it through typing 'shell:startup' in the Win+R (Run) field). But the rest of his suggestion involves just the usual procedure (i.e. what is already being tried), so it would have the same problem.

    I don't see any explanation of how it is possible that these used to work earlier as stated by the OP (and I have the same recollection about this if my memory is right). Since this is Windows 10 forums, I assume that's been the platform referred to by everyone (albeit different build releases possibly).

    I don't want to have to go create an item in Task Scheduler for a built-in Windows app. Everything else in the Startup folder I have works, and the Task Manager also works when it's double-clicked on in the folder.

    I don't know how this item is marked as Solved (unless the key aspect is that the program OP is asking about needs Admin privileges), despite the problems with the two suggestions I pointed out. I don't mean to re-open a properly closed item, so I'll be happy to remove this, open a new item, or just look at another one that you might be able point me to.

    Hello Arthur,

    By default, Windows will not allow any program to run elevated at startup for security reasons.

    You could use the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut of this program, then place the elevated shortcut in your Startup folder. The program will then run elevated at startup without getting a UAC prompt.

    What was said by miken (page 1) works correctly with Windows 10 Enterprise.
