Changing app to admin priveliges.

Im trying to make it so that my son has the capability to run a program using admin, and only that one program, is there anyway to do that so i don't have to constantly put my password in to allow him to play?

Welcome to Seven forums clatch.
You can make a user account for your son and reinstall the program and allow All Users to run. No password nor admin permission needed then.

If that fails to work above, then you might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to create a elevated shortcut that he could use to run the program.

Hope this helps,
