    Does not work here I'm afraid. (I get no prompt saying 'Yes/No' to open an elevated app.)
    Does it open at all. Just tried it and it opened command prompt as admin so nothing to choose from.

    You sure you do it correctly? Type CMD, Command Prompt is found and shown top most. Press and hold down CTRL and SHIFT keys, still holding them down press ENTER, release all three keys.

    Command Prompt opens elevated, showing UAC prompt if UAC is not disabled.

    You must have UAC disabled? It shows the prompt if UAC is enabled.

    Not all disabled, just on lowest setting.

    Some weeks/months ago I loaded a 3rd instance of W10 on a spinner, with the idea that when Skip became available again I'd try the registry hack to see if it would load. But I had only noted one of the two necessary registry edits.Today I booted into that 3rd instance build (1699.251), and tried setting the one value. It didn't stick. I joined the Insider program, and updated to 17115.1. Then I looked at Brink's .reg file, and saw that the 2nd value needed setting. Manually edited the registry, rebooted, checked WU and there was build 17618 ready to download! I'm typing this post in FF59.0 on Skippy.

    Edit: further testing will be tomorrow or later, this W10 install has hardly any of the apps that I use on a daily basis. But getting it to install is satisfying! Store works as expected, as does Admin CMD

    I tried again...still did not do anything!! (I put the UAC slider to maximum.) No prompt...didn't do a thing from the Start Menu although from the cmd.exe from file explorer works by right clicking and Run as Admin. Any ideas?

    Probably everybody, it means no suspended process(es) where it applies.
