hi all
there's something bother me, it's "Run As Administrator"
i have many software, but most of them won't work properly unless i run as administrator
like VideoGet it can put the videos on the desktop, or even can't download.
and Your Uninstaller, can't remove junk and Registry left values.

so i want to get rid of this, how ?

much appreciate it

You can change the shortcut of the apps to automatically run as administrator, but as long as you have the UAC enabled, you will have to put up with the prompt asking you to run it as an administrator.

Right click on the icon for the app and go to properties. Click on the compatibility tab. At the bottom, put a checkmark for Run this program as an administrator.

Sometimes, the above option is not available, the box is greyed out, then try this.

Right click on the icon for the app and go to properties. Click on the Shortcut tab and then click the Advanced button. Put a checkmark for Run this program as an administrator.

There is one more option but not recommended.

Enable the built-in Administrator account and login to the computer with that.

Only if you disable UAC all together.

Thanks Mitchell. Learned something new today. Should be good for Zera. But that seems like a lot of work. Plus we have to install another app to disable the UAC pop ups.

I'll just stick with clicking OK for now.

Are you also aware you can change how strict the UAC is by default?

Unless you turn it off (never notify), you will always be prompted when you "Run as administrator".
