Windows 7: Giving Permission

28 Dec 2012   #1

Giving Permission

I have just created a new account and I'd like to allow it to run some programs that I have installed within my main account. Is there any way that I can give 'Run' permission to another user without having to re-install the program?

What happens if you browse to the folder the programs are installed in and start them? If that works, move or copy the icon for the program from the old account tot he new account.
