Windows 7: How do I prevent UAC from prompting me when running in admin mode

How do I prevent UAC from prompting me when running in admin mode

I need to run some programs as administrator such as Visual Studio 2010. So I set it to run as administrator, but because of the user account control settings, I am prompted to allow it to run each time. Is there a way to not see these prompts when running a program, without turning off the notifications in the UAC completely?

Thanks

Hello Dirch, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition to what Flatiron posted above, you could also create a elevated shortcut using the tutorial below and just use it in your administrator account for this. Either post should work for you.

Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User

Hope this helps,
Shawn
