    I have a simple shortcut file (.lnk) which I want to make "Always run as administrator", but I can't see the compatibility tab?

    There's no "compatibility" tab for system applications (or shortcuts to them).

    Also, running a purchased upgrade of Windows 8 Pro. Will this apply for Windows 8 as well?

    Solved!!!

    I Went into the .exe's "Advanced" button, and selected "Run as Administrator", that solved my problem! Thanks anyway for all your help 100, MDL is a GREAT community of nice and helpful members!:)

    Now... I'm back on another issue... I cannot seem to find the Compatibility Files tab in the "ribbon"... is there a replacement feature for this, from Windows 7 to 8?
