    I have an application that needs to be run as administrator to function correctly. The account that needs to run this is a user account. I have found a number of discussions on how to do this and a lot have pointed to creating a shortcut akin to the below:


    [COLOR=rgba83, 90, 96, 1]runas /user:Administrator /savecred "Path\To\Software.exe"[/COLOR]

    When it is first run it requests the credentials as expected, I enter the correct details but then the application doesn't open. I re-run the shortcut and a cmd opens and closes very quickly.


    I've also tried this possible solution but when running it the same thing happens:


    https://superuser.com/questions/770420/schedule-a-task-with-admin-privileges-without-a-user-prompt-in-windows-7


    Any further advise to allow a standard user to run an application as administrator without the user having to provide credentials?

  2. E-one Win User

    Is there still reason to use standard user account in Windows OS?

    Hi all!

    Suppose I'm the only user of the computer. Suppose I have User Account Control activated. Is there or are there still reasons to create and use standard user account for everyday work? As far as I understand, with User Account Control active I have the permissions of a standard user even if I'm logged on as an administrator. If I use administrator account for everyday work does User Account Control give me EXACTLY the same level of protection from viruses and malware and from making accidental system-wide changes as standard user account with active UAC? I don't imply that UAC protects me from viruses and malware. I use proper antivirus software for that.

    In other words, do I get the same level of protection when I use administrator account with UAC enabled and when I use standard account with UAC enabled? Is it true that UAC turns an administrator account into what is know as a protected administrator account, basically, an administrator account that runs with standard user account privileges? Or does standard user account with UAC enabled gives me yet higher level of protection over administrator account with UAC enabled?

  3. Account user mode changing issues.(Administrator/ standard)

    Hi,

    The User Account Control is a type of security that restricts unauthorized installation of apps and settings modification. You will normally encounter this notification if you are using a standard account. Since this is the issue that you have encountered
    on your PC, we would like to ask for additional information to help us provide you the appropriate solution. Please answer the following:

    • What command did you run when you changed the administrator account to standard?
    • Do you still have another administrator account that you can log into?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We look forward to your response.

    Standard user account created shows Administrator on Windows 10

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Are you logging in using a Microsoft account on any of the created two user accounts?
    • Have you created 2 local account with administrative privileges on the computer?


    Please be informed that Local user account as well as
    Microsoft user account
    can be considered as Standard user account. A
    Standard user account is the user account which do not have any administrative privileges.



    It is possible to create two or more accounts with administrative privileges on computers running with Windows 10 operating system.



    If you want to convert one of the user account as a standard account, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.



    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type Control panel in the search box and select the top most search result.
    • Select User Accounts and click on Change account type
      from the window.
    • Click on the user account and select Change the Account type option.
    • Select Standard and click on Change account type
      button from the window.
    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
