    Advanced Properties/Run As Administrator Grayed Out


    I need to access some areas of the control panel that are only available when it is run as administrator.

    I am unable to do this because the option to do so is grayed out.

    UAC is turned off.

    How can I run control panel as administrator?

    Here's a video with a duration of 58 seconds to demonstrate the problem: https://youtu.be/R4et0Eyz8nM

  2. Unable to Run Certain Applications Without Running as Administrator [Windows 10 x64bit]

    Hello vincent7763, my name is Irisdiel and I am an independent advisor.

    To always run applications as administrator I would suggest following the below instructions followed by a URL that you may refer to for more information.

    Step 1: Open the Start menu and click All apps. Find the program you want to always run in administrator mode and right-click on the shortcut. In the pop-up menu, click Open file location. Only desktop programs (not native Windows 10 apps) will have this option.

    Step 2: A File Explorer window will open to the location of the program you want to access. Right-click on the program and click Properties from the pop-up menu.

    Step 3: In the Properties window, click the Shortcut tab and then click Advanced...

    Step 4: In the Advanced Properties window, check the box next to Run as administrator and click OK.

    Step 5: The program will now open in administrator mode when you click the shortcut from the Start menu. You'll need to repeat these steps for each program you want to have this feature.

    Thank you and good luck.

    How to always allow administrator permissions for a specific application

    Hi Lyon,

    Windows 10 gives users the ability to customize how they run applications. We suggest that you follow the steps below on how to grant administrator permission to a specific application:

    • Click the Windows icon on your Windows 10 screen that will open the list of applications. Right click on the specific application that you wish to have an admin permission, click the
      More and click Open file location.
    • A new window will open to the location of the program. Right-click on the program and click
      Properties from the pop-up menu.
    • In the Properties window, click the Shortcut tab and then click
      Advanced.
    • In the Advanced Properties window, check the box next to
      Run as administrator
      and click OK.
    • The program will now open in administrator mode when you click the shortcut from the Start menu. Repeat the steps above for other desired applications.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Run as Administrator in Windows 10


    Hello,

    I have followed your steps as instructed to effectively create key entries for both Command Prompt, and Registry Editor. Registry Editor usually opens with administrator privileges although I was hoping this registry edit would bypass the UAC prompt, and the command line simply opens as usual, not as elevated. I know I could create a shortcut for cmd and create a scheduled task to run as administrator or even select the 'Run as Administrator' checkbox within the shortcuts advanced properties but again I was hoping this would too bypass the UAC prompt when using the direct application path, and not a shortcut. Am I missing something?

    Regards
