    So I want to move to windows 8.1, but one thing is holding me back, how can I change the policies of windows 8.1, to make all programs run as an administrator?like in old windows nt 6.x series, when you disable UAC it would grant admin rights to all programs,however in windows 8 series when you disable UAC, it dosent grant admin rights, it just make the popup don't show :/

    I'm not sure you want to do this.. the dangers outweigh the convenience... i.e. allows malware to execute silently.

    yeah, yeah, I know all that crap.
    I don't even use ant virus, yet my windows 7 installation is still rocking for 2 years. I don't download too much things,except games on steam and some files, however I help a lot of people doing mods for games, and other things(like hex editing files and some other things), and so right clicking every program, or right clicking every file, or open command prompt with admin and then doing cd to path gets really annoying, that's why I want to know.
