Windows 10: Can't the UAC remember which I apps I run all the time

    Can't the UAC remember which I apps I run all the time

    I want to click on my shortcut and fire up Ninja Trader without having to click run as Administrator, which I am, and without clicking yes to the UAC pop up window.

    How can I change a shortcut permission to open without jumping through all these hoops?

    Even though it says I'm the Admin, do I need to go to the Elevated Admin to do simple things like saving a Power & Save setting, which I can't do currently?

    thanks, I know these are really basic questions, I wish someone would answer them.

    Can't the UAC remember which I apps I run all the time

    Can't the UAC remember which I apps I run all the time and are trusted?
    I seem to remember an option of saying this app is ok don't ask me again.
    How do I do I set an app that I run every day.

    Thank you for your quick reply.
    This appears to be a global change to the UAC effectively disabling it.
    It seems like it's a good idea to be protected from programs that make changes to my PC, so I'm not in favor of getting rid of it altogether.

    You can use the task scheduler to suppress UAC prompts for certain programs. Here is a guide.

    No (with the user-defined exceptions detailed above) - because it might be some rogue program that is pretending to be you, about to do something unpleasant to your system - that's why your User Account Control asks you to OK it in an interactive way.

    You can change individual shortcuts to run using the authority of the built in administrator account using the runas command as described in option 2 here Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User - Windows 7 Help Forums
