Windows 7: Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

I tried this and it all looked good but I keep getting error messages and nothing is recorded.
I do not think it is a problem with what you propose as I get this message right from the start!
Once the read has finished there are no tasks to edit.$
I tried again but the task was already defined even though it cannot be displayed!

Hello Nigelino, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not sure what could be wrong there, but you might see if starting over from scratch with a new name may work better. Be sure to double check and follow each step exactly. It's not hard to make a mistake by accident.

This is a very well written tutorial! I would like to add one comment for less experienced people (like myself): If the task is not directly in the Task Scheduler Library, then one has to specify the whole path to the task (e.g. Target: C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "Microsoft\Windows\Maintenance\SixEngine", instead of just "SixEngine".) This is probably obvious for more experienced users, but for me it wasn't obvious at first sight . -lgutai.

Hello lgutai,

That's why is was specified in step 2, but thank you for helping to make sure this is done by others to avoid issues.

Hello, I've tried using that to steam, but every time I do one of the actions (see in screenshot), it prompts me with UAC.
Plus, it is showing 2 steam icons on the task bar.

Does this work on Windows 10?

Hey Honeycomb,

I haven't tested it yet in Windows 10, but it should work. However, most have not had success using it with Steam though.

Massive thanks

Just registered here to say a massive thank you for this easy to use simple instructions.
Now I can start my program in Admin mode without having to worry about turning down UAC.

Cheers!
