    The method below to create an elevated shortcut that gets placed in the Startup folder has always worked well for me for admin accounts.

    Elevated Shortcut without UAC - Create in Windows 10
    Hey Brink,

    Thanks for your reply that's the tutorial I was using but I'm a bit confused.

    Instead of naming it "Elevated command" I called it "Realtemp" coz that's the program I want to automatically load at startup and run.

    Under the Actions Field I said start a program from drop down box, type "Realtemp" for program/script and the under the "Arguments Field" which is optional I put in the script as outlined in my previous reply including the file location of where I have Realtemp stired.

    Went through and created the shortcut as well but I must be missing something coz windows loads up but I have to manually click on Realtemp on desktop to open it.

    Also when I clicked on the shortcut I created afree making the scheduled task it just clicks open and closes on the screen sort of like it attempts to run but doesn't. Is this because it's shortcut to a scheduled task.

    Really confused. All I did in Windows 7 was create a shortcut for Realtemp and place in Windows 7 startup folder and it worked perfectly.

    It looks like you didn't do step 7 correctly to have cmd.exe in the Program/script field.

    Thanks Brink I think I miss understood that and put the name of the application eg. Realtemp.

    So under program/script I put "cmd.exe" & then in the arguments field do I need to put cmd.exe and then put the location of Realtemp as cmd.exe will launch Realtemp based on the location I put in is that correct?

    I think I'm understanding this now and with the shortcut that I have to create do I need to place this in the Startup folder?

    Many Thanks

    You're basically using cmd.exe in the Program/script field to open an elevated command prompt to run the command below in the Add arguments field to open an elevated Realtemp.

    /c start "Task Name" "Full path of .exe file for application"

    Oh right I see.

    So for the /c start "Task name" I would put task name as "Realtemp" and the full directory of Realtemp? Is that correct.

    Correct.
    Great I will try that and let you know. So in program/script field I put cmd.exe and in arguments field I put the Realtemp and it's location.

    Doesn't seem so hard now that I understand.

    Do I still need to place the shortcut that's also in the tutorial into the startup folder?

    That's correct. The location being that of the full path to the .exe file for Realtemp.

    Yep, you'll need to place the elevated shortcut from the task into you Startup folder for it to be able to run elevated at startup.

    Thanks for your help.

    Windows 7 was so much easier didn't have to create an elevated command prompt just had to put a shortcut into startup folder.
