    Hi,

    Any way to hide annoying powershell flash when taking ownership? Also is there a way to skip prompt and elevate the process by default? As i remember the older version would finish everything and exit without any annoying prompts or pauses... i wish i can replicate that behavior..

    Hello Jack, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The old method used the "Runas" key in the registry which would still have the "Run as administrator" context menu for executable files instead of "Take Ownership". This is why the new method uses the PowerShell method to elevate instead to avoid this and have both, but yeah it does have the PowerShell flash to run the commands.

    However, both methods will prompt for UAC approval by default depending on your UAC settings.

    You could use the download from step 2 to not have a pause.

    If you still want to use the old method, then you can use the tutorial below from Windows 7 that uses it. It will still work in Windows 10.

    With Insider Preview build 18890, localized to German, cmd returns the error
    (translated from German): "value "y" cannot be used with switch /d"

    Do I have to replace "y" by the German "j" (meaning ja=yes) ?
    Thanks for guidance! Tom

    Hello Tom, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Correct. You would need to replace the "y" value with "j" instead for your language.

    Here's a ready made .reg for German with this modification.
