    Since when do I need to get permission from "administrator" to change a name of a shortcut... Ei_24mQO9gDVKLvdFrXg3TSGZNCkAbvkEj-dE6PMo38.jpg

    So, for what ever reason, I have to approve renaming action to any shortcut, that leading to executable, that located in C:\Program files\.

    I can rename any other shortcut without this confirmation, regardless of what is behind it. But those, who lead to Program files - I cannot.

    Why? How can I get rid of this confirmation dialog?

    no administrator permission

    Hi Ryan,

    Let us assist you to have an Administrator permission. To start, follow the steps below to enable the Windows Super Administrator Account.

    • Type CMD on the search box.
    • CMD will appear at top.
    • Right click on it, then choose Run as administrator.
    • Type this command & hit Enter: Net user administrator /active:yes.
    • After you enable the Super Administrator account, log out on your existing account then log into Super Administrator account.
    • On the Super Administrator account, you can now create an Administrator account or give Administrator permission on the existing account.

    After you created an Administrator account, we suggest that you disable the Super Administrator account by following the same steps and using this command:
    Net user administrator /active:no.

    Let us know how it goes.

    administrator permissions needed

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per description, you are getting error message "THIS ACTION REQUIRES ADMINISTRATOR PERMISSIONS" using quick books.

    I would suggest you to follow the method given below and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    Try to run the application as an “Administrator” and check. Follow the steps mentioned below.

    1. Right click the shortcut of the application or the main application.

    2. Select
    properties.

    3. Select
    compatibility tab and select "Run this program as an administrator."

    If issue still persists try method 2,

    Method 2:

    User Account Control (UAC) notifies you before changes are made to your computer that require administrator-level permission. The default UAC setting notifies you when programs try to make changes to your computer, but you can change how often
    UAC notifies you. It might be that you have your computer to “Always notify”.

    Always Notify:

    You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer or to
    Windows settings that require administrator permissions. This is the most secure setting.

    To change the settings in User Account Control follow the steps mentioned below.

    • Press Windows key + X key.
    • Select Control Panel.
    • Select User accounts.
    • then click Change User Account Control settings.
    • If prompted by UAC, click/tap on Yes.
    • Move the slider up or down to the setting for how you want to be notified by UAC, and click/tap on
      OK.
    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.
