Windows 10: Can't run a shortcut in startup folder as administrator
Can't run a shortcut in startup folder as administrator
I have a program shortcut in the startup folder that I need to run as admin, otherwise it prompts me to do it manually after the system starts, which is annoying.
The Shortcut tab has an Advanced button where I can check a Run as Admin box, but the system does not let me check it.
