    the default is simply just run (not in elevated mode)
    Give this a try. No guarantees.
    (Hopefully I have not misunderstood what you were asking.)

    Right click at the exe file of the application > click Properties > select Compatibility tab at the top > check the box "Run this program as an administrator" > Apply/OK.

    Example .........

    Click image for larger version.
