    Can't Open Google Chrome on Administrator Account


    Hi

    I am only able to open it on my standard account. This has happened before, but it usually corrects itself, but not this time.

    How can I correct this permanently?

    :)

    User account control pop-up when running Google Chrome

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    This issue could be because Google Chrome is set to Run as administrator that is why you get the User Account Control pop-up every time you open Google Chrome. We can change the settings to Run Google Chrome as normal and check if that helps.



    Please follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Right click on Google Chrome shortcut on Desktop and select
      Properties.
    2. Click on Compatibility tab.
    3. Clear the check box for Run as
      administrator.
    4. Click on Apply and OK.
    5. Open Google Chrome and check.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

  4. Can't Open Google Chrome on Administrator Account

    Google Chromed Saved Accounts.

    Is there any plugin or a xml file that when you open that it will have your saved accounts without like re-logging into websites and stuff?

    It should be for google chrome and if possible for firefox answell.

    I am looking for something similar if you know feel free to tell!

    Thanks.
