How to create an elevated program shortcut without a UAC prompt
Your step by step on this was awesome! Thank you. It works great all accept for one thing. It seems you have to have Administrator privileges to still run it. I'll give you my scenario. I am a homeschool mom and my kids are using the program Typing Instructor for Business on Windows 7. It is just frustrating and time consuming to keep entering my password just so that they can do a typing lesson. I have fiddled around all afternoon trying to figure out how they can run this without the UAC issue. Even when I modify the tasksched user privileges - I get passed the Command Prompt, "Access Denied" just fine but then the program itself continues to demand Administrator rights. Do you have any more ideas for me?
I'm just about ready to throw in the towel and turn off UAC! or give them the admin password. But I'd really rather not do that.
Thanks for your added help,

Shawn, I've got this down pat. I used it on a program that was new to me and I set a digital watch that is accurate to the second under my monitor. Now I've done this a lot so this certainly wasn't the time it took me a few months ago, but I finished everything but the icon change in one minute and 28 seconds. I really don't think that you can improve on this tutorial. The only thing that you might add on would have helped me in the past. If I make a mistake the first time through, I have found I have to go back to the page that comes up after I enter taskschd.msc. I see three columns. I have to click on task scheduler library and then go to the middle column and scroll down until I get to the name of the function that I just butchered. Then a right-click and delete clears that entry, and makes it possible to go ahead and give it another try. I didn't realize the need for these actions early on and only found out what to do after hunting around for awhile. That was partly because it took me awhile to realize that I had to clear that entry.

Shawn what I'm doing is:
1. go to an elevated command prompt,
2. type schtasks /? and hit enter
Reason being was to inform myself of the options available with schtasks.
Here's what I see:
SCHTASKS /parameter [arguments]
Enables an administrator to create, delete, query, change, run and
end scheduled tasks on a local or remote system.
/Create Creates a new scheduled task.
/Delete Deletes the scheduled task(s).
/Query Displays all scheduled tasks.
/Change Changes the properties of scheduled task.
/Run Runs the scheduled task on demand.
/End Stops the currently running scheduled task.
/ShowSid Shows the security identifier corresponding to a scheduled task name.
/? Displays this help message.
SCHTASKS /Run /?
SCHTASKS /End /?
SCHTASKS /Create /?
SCHTASKS /Delete /?
SCHTASKS /Query /?
SCHTASKS /Change /?
SCHTASKS /ShowSid /?
