setting up windows as always admin
Posted on 2010-08-25
I'm doing development on Windows 7 and the whole "run as administrator" thing is greatly interfering with all my work. I have my account on my machine set up with admin privileges, but when files are created they are created with mode (unix) d______, or, in otherwords, no privileges whatsoever. That wreaks havoc and I am sick of having to verify everything to run as admin. I can't even browse to the C: folder in many apps to save or open files!
How do I set up my account so that it always runs as admin? I'm familiar with "Change User Account Control settings", but that only affects notifications, not how programs are run.
As sad as it is, I'll take my chances w/ viruses since this issues is greatly slowing me down.
