    Windows 10: Memorizing Administration Permissions

    Hello people from Ten Forums. At first sorry for my bad English.

    So, 1 year ago, after "figthing" to many viruses that affected my PC, because I downloaded too many things with them, I decided to setup a Admin account and turning my account a "normal user". With this, I was able to, everytime, some program needs admin privileges, it asks my password. However, there are many programs that I trust but are everytime I run them, asking for privilegess. Is there anyway to make Windows stop asking me for privileges for those apps? I tried to google for it, but I didn't found any answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to Ten Forums thunderbinazuma:)

    You could set up an account using Family Safety, using the child account(a misnomer in my opinion) options and then set the apps & programs you use often to run, all others on the system will then need elevated privileges.

    Set restrictions on apps, games, and media To set limits on the apps, games, and media your child can use, you set an age-based rating level. Then, kids can use apps, games, and media that are rated appropriately for their age, but not ones that are too mature for them. If your child downloaded something before you set these limits, you can block it where it appears on the Recent activity page, and your child won't be able to use it until you allow it again.
    If kids want to use a blocked app or game, they can ask your permission. You can respond to permission requests from your email or from the family page on the Microsoft account website.

    Before Windows 10, app and game restrictions had two separate On/Off switches—one for apps, and one for games. Now, both are managed with one switch. If you previously only turned on restrictions for one of them but not the other, and haven't changed them since, then those settings still apply. However, if you visit family on the Microsoft account website and turn app, game and media restrictions off and then on again, apps, games, and media will be restricted.

    To use age-based rating levels

    • Select Apps, games & media, and switch Block inappropriate apps and games from Off to On.
    • Go to Limit apps and games and select the age level that's appropriate for your child.


    On devices running Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7 or older versions of Windows, all apps and games that don't have an age rating are blocked by default when you turn on app and game restrictions. This helps protect younger kids from using inappropriate apps or playing games that are too mature for them, but it may also block certain apps that you want older kids to be able to use—including productivity apps like word processors and spreadsheets. You may want to turn on app and game restrictions for younger kids, but choose to monitor older kids’ activity using activity reporting.

    Well, it worked, but only with Apps from the Windows Store. Applications like Photoshop or Dragon Ball Xenoverse still asks for those permissions.

    I don't know other wise, maybe some else will come along that does.

    The old Windows Live Family Safety(for Windows 7) let you cherry pick installed programs.
