How to prevent UAC popup "...blah blah..make changes to this computer?" ?


Extraordinary Member
When I start certain programs then sometimes an "User account control" UAC popup appears asking me if I really want to allow this program to start and possibly to make changes to this computer.

How can I suppress this popup permanently FOR THIS progam (but keep it in general for all new programs) ?


Welcome to the forums, Peter. : )

Right click a program's shortcut or .exe -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Check the box next to "Run this program as an administrator" -> Apply -> Ok
