    That tweak does not work for me. Made the changes and checked the registry settings. Still can't open edge. Works fine under my user account. I wish it did work, then I would run always as the built-in admin so I don't have to put up with all the 'run as administrator' garbage.

    I cannot agree Mystere, There is a way to run Egde with admin privileges.
    Just run Local Security Policy Editor (use search box or Cortana), find Local Policy/Security options and on the right pane find "Use Admin Approval Mode for the built-in Administrator account". Enable it and enjoy Edge despite admin privs

    Running Microsoft Edge as Administrator

    Seems very sketchy...
    Internet Explorer is still installed on Windows 10. I needed to open Edge as administrator because I needed to install a certificate. However, that is nobody's business why I need to run something as administrator. Navigate to program files and find the IE executable and run that as administrator. I installed the certificate and it also installed in Edge. I can now open the site in Edge without needed to click through the continue anyway link. Try that and see if it works in for whatever you are trying to do also.

    Hi guys,

    So we have these tools that need elevated rights within IE to install correctly. In windows 7 we always did the right click, run as admin thing. However, now after the upgrade and Edge there seems to be no availability to run it as admin. Tried all the icons & right click that I can find for Edge but not getting the option anywhere.

    This should be an easy thing to do, no?

    Any ideas appreciated. Tried also with the Edge app from /Windows/Systemapps and it didnt give the option either. Of course if I go back to IE it allows me...

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Huh? I can't fathom how anything would require IE to be elevated... What are you talking about exactly?

    I would assume that you're talking about some kind of extension. Edge does not yet support extensions, nor does it support (nor will it ever support) ActiveX.
    I can give you a very good reason. SQL SErver Reporting Services requires you to run IE (or in this case Edge) as Administrator in order to access admin options for it. Again, it is irrelevant why someone needs to do something. However, since you seem to think that nothing actually needs it and that's why MS built it this way, you are incorrect. In fact, allowing something to run "as administrator" does not necessarily mean it is running in elevated privilege that the user would not have. It is an extra layer of security to prevent you form doing something accidentally.

    You're just not making any sense. If you won't explain why you need to run a browser in administrator mode, we can't help you, since doing so makes no sense.

    Edge is a universal app. Universal apps do not function with administrator privileges.
    I think he is making sense.
    Sometimes one need to launch a browser with administrator privileges. For example Microsoft Report Server and Report Manager needs a browser launched with administrator privileges

    Those tools use ActiveX controls, which Edge does not support. You needed to run them as administrator in order to get the ActiveX Control installed, that doesn't work with Edge.

    I was wondering what happened after I did a complete reset of WIN10 Pro. I could no longer run Edge or IE 11 browser when logged in with the built-in Administrator account. Now I know you will ask "Why do you want to do this?" I have always installed all software on a PC using the Administrator account and not individual user profiles. It is really as simple as that.

    Now checking the Local Security Policy I found the settings it now works again. What I also noticed that there are many parameters other parameters that are either disabled or undefined. Is there a reference document one could refer to read up on these parameters?

    I'm not really sure why everyone is being an a$$ and not just answering the question. Not everyone needs a motive colonoscopy when asking a question.
