    How to avoid "admin rights needed" during startup, for old utilities?


    I'm still using some older utilities that load at bootup. They trigger the "load as administrator" routine, which is an annoying interruption that requires a user click. Is there a way to force Win10 to auto-load programs (either specific ones, or alternatively any program) without user intervention?

    (Running Win10-Pro 1909; the latest available for my ThinkPad)

    I use this registry hack to avoid from: .exe, .bat,.cmd, .vbs file extensions
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\{E2F13B98-650F-47DB-845A-420A1ED34EC7}User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".exe;.bat;.cmd;.vbs"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations]
    "LowRiskFileTypes"=".exe;.bat;.cmd;.vbs"

    Set the applications up in Task scheduler, see
    Create Elevated App Shortcut without UAC Prompt - TenForumsTutorials
    then don't try to start the applications themselves at startup but run their TS tasks instead.
