shortcut to 'Run As Administrator'

Posted: 08-11-2008, 11:09 AM
How do I create a shortcut to a program that needs to be "Run as
Administrator"?

What I currently do is right-click on the program name and choose "Run
as Administrator", but if there is a way to create such an icon on my
desktop, that would be a great time-saver.

Pl help.

TIA
Russel

Just right click the program and select create shortcut, and copy it to
your Desktop. Then right click the shortcut, select properties, click
on the Compatibility tab, and put a check mark next to run this program
as administrator.

When you are creating the shortcut, open it and select the advanced button.
You will find what you want there. If you are looking to avoid the continue
prompt, that won't happen.
