Run as Administrator : via shortcut don't work
I have some programs that are set to run as an administrator. Most work ok.

But those that installed with a SHORTCUT on the desktop won't start as an
admin. I have to start the program via it's icon in its program folder.

Am I missing something?

Hi Fred,

When you right click on the shortcuts on the desktop, do they have the
option "Run as administrator" to check in the Compatibility tab? If
not, you might try to right click the program in the program folder and
click "Send To" > "Desktop (Create Shortcut)" to see if that shortcut
will work instead.

Here is a way to see a list of programs that are in compatibility mode
and what they are set for. EX: Run as administrator. It could come in
handy while your doing this.
