    Windows 10 - I cannot launch ANY application in Administrator mode including CMD


    I have

    1. Tried lowering the User Account Control level

    2. Setting my account specifically to Administrator

    3. Switching off my AVG antivirus


    None of these has helped


    There is no message when I attempt to launch an application in administrator mode. It simply seems to ignore the request.


    Applications still install successfully, so setup programs are clearly able to ramp up into administrator mode to run.

    :)

    How to always allow administrator permissions for a specific application

    Hi Lyon,

    Windows 10 gives users the ability to customize how they run applications. We suggest that you follow the steps below on how to grant administrator permission to a specific application:

    • Click the Windows icon on your Windows 10 screen that will open the list of applications. Right click on the specific application that you wish to have an admin permission, click the
      More and click Open file location.
    • A new window will open to the location of the program. Right-click on the program and click
      Properties from the pop-up menu.
    • In the Properties window, click the Shortcut tab and then click
      Advanced.
    • In the Advanced Properties window, check the box next to
      Run as administrator
      and click OK.
    • The program will now open in administrator mode when you click the shortcut from the Start menu. Repeat the steps above for other desired applications.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Windows 10 - I cannot launch ANY application in Administrator mode including CMD

    Cannot run any file, cmd prompt and others, as administrator

    Hello Antenore,

    Windows 10 may have encountered a system corruption that caused this. For us to better assist you, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer?
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10? To check type in
      winver on the search bar and press Enter.
    • Do you have another administrator account? If none, have you tried adding another administrator
      account
      ?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you enable the built in administrator account in Windows 10 by following the steps below:


    If you still can't access the Command Prompt (Admin) on safe mode, kindly try the steps below to access it on Windows Recovery Environment:

    • Hold down the Shift key while clicking the Restart
      option.
    • Your PC will continue to the Windows Recovery Environment.
    • Click Troubleshoot. On the Troubleshoot screen, click
      Advanced Options.
    • Click Command Prompt.
    • Type the following command: net user administrator /active:yes and press
      Enter. You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
