    How to restrict program execution to Admin Group only


    Some programs don't give the option during install to restrict
    > Run only by current user
    > Run by all users

    How can I restrict a program(s) to be run by Administrators group only? (If can't restrict at the Group Level, then by username?) I'm running Windows 10 Pro v22H2 so Group Policy is an option.

    Thanks.

    Hi, try setting permissions (read and execute) on the relevant exe file appropriately.
