  1. Windows only lets me run exes as Administrator, and regedit has not solved it?

I have tried using REGEDIT to ed

  2. exe files and regedit

    I can't access any of my exe files or regedit. Every time I double click on a program, Windows 10 tells me to find an app to open it. When regedit came up the first time, I looked up the steps to getting my exe files to be recognized by Windows 10 and
    that didn't work. Now, I can't get regedit to work! i am so frustrated. Could somebody help me and tell me what is going on here please?

  3. Exe files can only be opened by "run as administrator"

    Hi,

    Corrupted registry settings, some third-party products, or viruses can change the default configuration for running .exe files. To rectify the issue with opening this particular file type, we suggest that you follow the steps
    below:

    • Right-click on the Start button, then choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    • Type regedit and press Enter.
    • Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe.
    • Double-click (Default) key, then set the Value data to
      exefile.
    • Scroll down to go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command key.
    • Double-click (Default) key, then set the Value data to “%1” %*.
    • Restart your computer.

    Update us if it addressed your issue.

    Thank you.

  4. Windows only lets me run exes as Administrator, and regedit has not solved it?

    *.exe files do not open unless I select run as administrator

    I solved that problem Windows only lets me run exes as Administrator, and regedit has not solved it? :)

    • Open Command Prompt (run as admin) type cd\windows
    • Press "Windows key + R" on your keyboard type regedit
    • locate HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe in the right side pane change the value of Default key to exefile
    • On the registry editor go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command
    • in the right side pane change the value of Default key to "%1" %*
    • then restart your computer

    The problem is fixed now Windows only lets me run exes as Administrator, and regedit has not solved it? :)
