Always Run as Administrator

Posted on


In Windows 7 you must be an Administrator to install or do certain functions in Windows 7. Majority of the time it ask you if you want to run as administrator to do what needs to be done. However there have been a few cases where I could not do something because I was not the administrator. How do I always run Windows 7 as an administrator?


You can disable UAC (though not recommended for long term use):

Go to User Account Control Settings.

Type in UAC, or go to the System and Security applet.

Click on the “Change User Account Control Settings” link.

Move slider to NEVER NOTIFY.

You can normally right click the program and select “run as administrator”
