    Disable the User Account Control (UAC) for a specific program


    I have a program which I want to run every time at startup, and it needs to run with Administrator privileges.

    I created a ".bat" script, with the following command:

    powershell -Command "Start-Process 'c:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackPro\SyncBackPro.exe' " -Verb runAs ,

    and I placed a shortcut to this ".bat" file in the Startup folder ( shell:startup ).


    This has worked fine for me on Windows 8 HOME, and on Windows 10 HOME (which I got by simply upgrading the old Windows 8 to it).

    Now I installed the newest Windows 10 PRO, and this solution does not work anymore, because I get the UAC prompt every time I logon.

    I see this topic was already raised and that I'm not the only windows 10 user very annoyed by the lack of possibility to disable the UAC for a specific program....

    Can I somehow DISABLE the UAC prompt, either for this specific shortcut from the "Startup" folder, or for the ".bat" file to which it points to, or for the executable to which the shortcut points to ? Any of these would be fine.


    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Grant a specific application permanent UAC permission

    Hello jaksps,

    In line with your concern, User Account Control doesn't have a "allowed-or-blocked" list and disabling the User Account Control involves security risks. Though, there is a workaround to run a program without UAC prompt using Task Scheduler. I'd recommend
    performing the steps suggested by SpiritX MS MVP in this
    thread
    .

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.
