That is how it is supposed to work.
Yes I realize that's how it's 'supposed' to work. My question is is there a way to bring up a prompt or a command line that allows you to enter your Admin username and password so you can work within the user account as admin?
The IT folks at work do it all the time on our PC's (running XP still...)

if not already when installed.
Hope this helps,
That doesn't always work with the deletion of shortcuts. Not all of the shortcuts on the desktop appear in the users "desktop" folder.
