Hello MK80, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut that standard users can use without getting a UAV prompt or having to enter an administrator's password. :)

Brink, the above means a standard cannot simply right-click and run as administrator, correct? OP has to follow the excellent info you provided to make that right-click possible, or make program simply run default at admin level. I learn something every day!

Hello Roland,

No. The standard user will be able to run the shortcut as usual, but it will automatically run elevated without getting a UAC prompt.
