    Can't run anything as admin user on windows 10

    I can't run any application as admin.
    I have read on some sites that after pressing right click and select Run as admin Y should be prompted with a selection to run as admin, but instead in ALL my apps I just get a dialog with no selection available:

    It says to continue enter an admin username and password but there's no field for input.

    Just curious; does the account you are using have admin permissions?

    Hello cooervo, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you have UAC set to "Never notify" or disabled and are signed in to a standard user account, then this would be normal. UAC will need to be enabled to be able for a standard user to be able to enter an administrator password in a UAC prompt.
