No. The only difference is the UAC prompt appears. However the user interface does not appear.

My working shortcut from the Start Menu -

Target: %windir%\system32\cmd.exe
Start in: %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%

My user account IS an Administrator account. Beyond checking the Target and Start in under the shortcut's properties, I am not sure what else I can suggest.

Have you tied opening a command window from the Start Menu, Run dialogue box? Windows Button + R, CMD.

Yes - that works. Still would like to know why a shortcut doesn't though.

Curious. And the properties of your Start Menu shortcut match those above?

I'm afraid I am stumped.

Shortcut key for Shortcuts not working
Hello Win7 32 bit. I have a shortcut made to an exe file. Obviously, it opens the program when clicked. I assigned a shortcut key to it under the Shortcut Tab. I tried F7, Alt-F7, Ctrl-F7 but it will not open the program. Am I missing something here? Thanks
