Windows 7: Files I know are there...but aren't there

Files I know are there...but aren't there

I have a program where it makes files but the files are not being shown in the folder. I know for a fact that they are being made in the folder but they are missing and have a lock icon over the actual icon.

Try running this program as the administrator then making the folders.
BTW, what program is it anyway?

I've tried that but it doesn't matter.

There is a way to just open it without pressing 'Run as admin' all the time ~
Type in the name of the program in the start search menu, right click it and press 'Copy'. Right click on the desktop, and select 'Paste as shortcut'.
Right click the shortcut on the desktop, and select properties.
Go to the 'Compatibility' tab.
Near the bottom, check 'Run this program as 'administrator'. Now just drag and drop this shortcut onto the taskbar.

It might still be a pain in the a** doing this every time for every new program but it does stop the frustration of right clicking all the time
