Windows 7: Administrator +

Administrator +

When I check Properties of User Mark, screens seem to show me having full priviledges or at least equal to System. Does this mean that I've got as many rights as I'm going to need for handling everyday end user tasks? There's nothing more annoying than attempting to delete or perform some action and then being told by MY computer that I bought that I do not have the rights.

I tried to get a file explorer desktop icon that 'runs as administrator' but when I run same as administrator, go to File, the create shortcut is grayed out?

As long as you are an administrator you have all the rights you need to maintain the system for others sharing the system as standard users.

Not sure what exactly you are trying to do with the short-cut.

If you are trying to create a short-cut that runs the explorer with administrative rights then this can be done by creating a standard short-cut and then adding the "run as Administrator" option via the right click and using the compatibility tab

I was trying to avoid having to right click the icon and run as administrator and simply double click the icon that would then run as administrator. If no--fine.

There is a way to achieve this using the task scheduler - there is a tutorial in the list on this site that gives full step by step instructions, variations allow you to run an elevated short-cut in the startup

That link had exactly what I needed--option 5.

The information that Brink has accumulated is amazing.

Does she have a general link directory of all her tutorials?
