    By the way, I forgot to say it... great guide!

    Here's a screenshot as requested. I don't believe it reveals anything my comment does not.

    To provide more information, the faulty behavior applies only to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. HKEY_CURRENT_USER behaves as expected.

    I'm not the only one who has encountered this problem, so please test it for yourself. Change the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE value for some standard exe (I tried Chrome) and then try running that exe.

    EDIT: In case you're going to comment on the missing tilde, that makes no difference. The tilde is just used to indicate that a value should append rather than replace. And yes, of course I've tried it both ways.
    It appears that HKEY_LOCAL_USER works, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE does not. I had to create the "Layers" key under AppCompatFlags.

    Hello Keith,

    You might see if using the tutorial below to add/restore the "Run as administrator" context menu may fix this since it will also restore all the default registry entries for it.

    Add or Remove Run as administrator Context Menu in Windows 10

    It may be a separate issue with netplwiz. The box will need to be checked to be able to select a user in netplwiz.

    Do you have UAC set to the default 2nd from the top level?

    You could see if doing a repair install of Windows 10 may be able to fix this without losing anything.

    The only problem remaining is opening apps from the search bar, they run ok from windows explorer as administrator.....must be a reason
