    how to run process explorer from startup folder as admin


    There are several items that don't appear in process explorer (sysinternals) unless it is run as administrator.

    I want to do this everytime I log in, so I placed a shortcut in the startup folder. This only works if I don't change the compatibility settings on it to run as administrator.

    I suspect that during login/startup that the prompt asking if you really want to run as administrator does not work from items in the startup folder.

    Is there any other way to get this going automatically?

    Hello rocket777,

    By default, Windows will not allow a program to "Run as administrator" at startup.

    However, you could use the method in the tutorial as a workaround to do so. It basically shows you how to create an elevated shortcut to run the program, then place this elevated shortcut in your Startup folder.

    Thanks, that worked! It's also nice to see that something that worked in windows 7 still works in windows 10
