    How to stop dialog box making me type in password for Administrator?


    It seems now that every time I run or delete an EXE file, the system makes me type in the password for the Administrator; especially as I typically do stuff in the dark, having to locate the keys for my password is a real pain. Now, I don't mind having that dialog box come up and making me simply click on the button (or hit Enter, etc.) In fact, if this is something that can prevent "drive-by" downloads or other nefarious stuff from happening, I want it (although I still mind typing in the password). In Windows 7, the system behaved in this latter way, and I'd like Windows 10 to behave in the same way.

    Removing the password is probably the only way.

    It all comes down to how you have UAC setup. Either your account is a Standard User or you went in and changed the way UAC operates.
