    Hi everyone,
    Can someone help me run all my programs as admin? I never used W8 and just migrated from W7.
    Is there any scripts/reg keys to run as admin without breaking anything?
    I care most for desktop applications and want to have full control like when I did in W7.
    Thanks for any replies

    You really don't want all of your programs to have admin level access. It is a security issue. Just think what would happen to your system if all programs had that type of access. Malware would be install itself without any input from you.

    For the programs i want to start as admin in general i use the same way since Win 7. 'Properties' of the actual EXE or the desktop LNK, 'Compatibility' Tab and check 'Run as Admin'. Done.
