    thx - I will look into it. btw, one of the reviews/comments ... :

    "Oh. So owner is "Administrator". So by virtue of running a program that is "Admin", the UAC prompt is bypassed. So this is kind of like if you kept an (admin level) CMD prompt open, you could then run (any) program that would normally require UAC prompt – without (the prompt)."

    How do you understand this comment to mean?

    All I know is that it creates an Elevated Shortcut.

    I don't think that simply running as admin removes UAC prompt if owner is set as member of administrators group.

    I just confirmed this. See:

    I still get a UAC prompt for that.

    However it is correct to say that you can open an elevated command window in a specified directory and from the command prompt run a program elevated without a UAC prompt. However I still get a UAC prompt when opening the elevated command window.

    ok - I have the Skip UAC app. Instructions are vague. I have dragged and dropped the shortcut to the taskkill batch file into the app as it says ("then you can drag n’ drop a program or shortcut to the Application interface" ). I have unchecked the Startup box. Stuck on next step. Do not see a 'save' option.

    The line that you added then unchecked the startup box. Right click the line. It should be obvious from there.

    Just in case it's not clear - right click and choose create shortcut.

    If you still get a UAC prompt when you launch the shortcut you can open the program again and delete the entry that you created.

    R-clik on the shortcut I dragged/dropped into the app produced a drop down and I selected 'execute file'. It worked.

    Is this what you meant?

    I meant right click added entries if you want to create an elevated shortcut.

    You get to choose the shortcut name and save location.

    Edit: Missed a step in the screenshot.

    1. Uncheck startup
    2. Highlight the entry
    3. Right click
    4. Choose "Create Shortcut"

    Anyway create your shortcut to your batch file using the program. Then go where you save the shortcut and launch it.

    Can you physically check the path by navigating to the file in Explorer?
