No worries Mike. All ideas are welcomed.

You wouldn't be able to change the location of the task like that, but you could right click on the task to export it to say your desktop, then right click on the new folder to import the exported task into it.

....... thanks for your reply.
I guess the shortcut can be created everywhere not necessarily only on the desktop or am I mistaken ...?...

Hey Shawn, I was wondering if this would disable that stupid UAC Shield on certain icons such as Defraggler, using Windows 8

Hello Echo,

The elevated shortcut that you create using this tutorial will not have an UAC shield on it's icon, but it will not remove the UAC shield on other files.

Shawn,

This is a great technique. The only problem with it is that I have too many programs that include their version number in the program's name. Since I've started writing tutorials for friends who have owned computers for years but pay no attention to the operating system, I realize how frustrated you must get sometimes. I have a friend, I'll call him A. A first bought a computer when Windows 95 came out. Yesterday I had to write a tutorial for A so that he could finally use Control Panel to uninstall a file. Fortunately he is so paranoid about installing files that he's survived until last Friday without needing to uninstall a program. Of course I had to show him the two different views of Control Panel. He had the default of "All Control Panel Items" and I had to show that and then show him what to push to get the "old-fashioned" Control Panel. The next day I had to show him how to get back to "All Control Panel Items". This and several others has made me appreciate your efforts on our behalves even more than before.

Thanks is insufficient but it will have to do.

Gerry

Hi Shawn,

I have an .exe programme (doesn't install) that I need to run on Start-up. I've turned off UAC and have added the programme to the start menu. The darn thing still won't start when I re-boot the computer.

I've also created a short-cut on my desktop in order to manually run the programme. This programme usually needs to be run with UAC.

You've listed several different options for the 'Elevated Program Shortcut' which one would work for my situation.

With thanks, ms

Hello Miss Sherlock,

If you like, you could place the elevated shortcut in your Startup folder or the "run at startup as a task" option at step 23 to run it at startup. This will not work for standard users though.

Hope this helps.
