Windows 10: Running always an application with administrative privileges

    Running always an application with administrative privileges


    Hi

    I have Windows 10 v1703 and I would need that an application is always run with administrative privileges even when it is run by a user who has a Users's account.

    So, how should I do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    You may want to take a look at the following tutorial, It's designed to run a program at startup without triggering the UAC prompt but you should be able to create a shortcut for the user to run on demand

    Right click on the shortcut, select properties, then the shortcut tab then the Advanced button on lower right

    Be aware that just setting the run as administrator option will require entry of the admin password by the user
