  1. How to stop running a program as an administrator when the program is not running


    To fix a problem with lag in a video game I when into the properties of the .exe file and started to run it as an administrator when the program was still open. After I had done that I opened the game again and it kicked me out repeatedly so I decided to close the game and open it again. When I tried to open the game again it said that I have to turn off the run as administrator to open the game. The only problem is that when I closed the game the .exe file went away from the task manager and now I dont know how to go into the properties and turn off the run as administrator option.

    :)

    Running Programs for a standard user

    Hello

    You mentioned checking the the box 'Run as Administrator'

    This is the opposite of what I require ,I wanted to avoid running programs as admin . By unchecking 'Run As Administrator' I am still getting an admin credential verification prompt

    Any further suggestions ?

    Hi,

    There are certain apps in Windows that aren't possible to be stopped as they're needed by your system. If you want to stop certain apps to be stopped from running in the back ground, follow the steps below.

    • Press Windows key, and type in "task manager".
    • Choose Task Manager > More details.
    • Right-click on the apps that you want to stop from running, and click on
      End task
      .

    Let us know what happens after following the suggestion.

    How to stop running a program as an administrator when the program is not running

    a program on windows 10 can only be started with "Run as an adminstrator"

    Hi Jaap,

    If a program is configured to Always Run as an Administrator, there is a possibility that the program is protected from unauthorized access.

    For us to isolate your issue and provide an appropriate resolution, we would like to know the following:

    • Is the issue isolated only on a specific program?
    • Are you using an administrator account?

    In the meantime, we have steps that we can try to allow a program to run in standard mode. Here are the steps below:

    • Type in the "program name" in the Search box.
    • Right-click on the program and select Open file location.
    • Right-click on the program and click Properties.
    • Click the Compatibility tab.
    • Under the Settings section, uncheck Run this program as an administrator.

    Let us know if you need anything else.
