how do you Give all users access to programs?

I have created a standard user so one of my roommates can use my computer, but it wont allow him to run some programs, how do i fix that ?

I am the admin on the computer. I want him to have access to the programs i already have installed But i don't want him to be able to uninstall or install anything

how do i do this ?

What programs? As long as the program doesn't require administrator access than you should be fine

Standard user access to programs

I just added a standard user and want them to have access to Microsoft outlook and mircrosoft office. I have tried changing permissions and have allowed full access to these programs but they are not accessible.

You may have UAC enabled, which may in your case be a good thing.

This is at least one method you can use: How to Create an Elevated Program Shortcut without a UAC Prompt
