    So, I use standard windows account as my main one and invoke admin account only when needed. This works great as I don't need admin rights for the majority of the stuff I do on my rig (gaming, listening to music, web browsing, etc)..however the problem is two of the programs I've installed recently won't startup with Windows when I'm logged in as a standard user. (They startup fine when I'm logged in as admin.)

    I added the shortcuts to Shell:startup under standard user but no joy. Is there anyway to get this working?

    Thank you.

    :)

    How do make programs run at startup on standard user account?

    Running Programs for a standard user

    Last Christmas I had purchased a Windows 10 laptop for my teenage niece , through experience I realized that it was not wise to set her up as an administrator which could potentially allow her to install viruses/malware/adware/spyware

    So I created for her a standard account with Teamviewer and a local Admin account so that I can install programs for her , remotely on the fly should she wish . I have since installed several programs one including a DJ software known as FL studio (Fruityloops
    ) . The challenge now however is that every-time she's logged on as a standard user and clicks on the FL Studio application shortcut , windows annoyingly prompts my niece to enter Admin credentials to run the program

    My Question is , how can I set up or change the machine so that my niece who is set up as a 'standard user' can run programs without having to know admin credentials

    I do not see the logic in blocking a harmless program run under a standard user account

    I assumed this would be a simple change to UAC , though I have not been able to run the FL studio as a standard user - Very annoying

    Hello Raava and welcome to the Forums. Have you tried shell:common startup ? That should open them for all users.

    I believe it is located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

    Hello essenbe,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I've just tried that and it didn't work -- they still didn't startup with Windows.

    I've just had a thought..is there a way to set them to be run as admin but in standard account durning startup??

    I really can't answer that. But, are the programs in shell:common startup selected for startup in Task Manager and are they shortcuts directly from the exe? Right click the programs and select open file location. Keep doing that until you find the .exe file, then send that as a shortcut. Many programs will have shortcuts to shortcuts, and some will not work on startup.

    Yes to both. In Standard account -> Task Manager -> Start-up, they're shown as Not measured probably because they've not been able to run.

    I've just had a quick look and I think I may need to use the Task Scheduler in this case...was trying to avoid that (since I know little about it and was hoping for a simpler approach..) but I'll give that a go once I'm back from work and report back.

    Thanks for the info.
