What is the Blue and Gold Shield on Windows 7
Posted on 2013-12-10
I have several Desktop icons and a few things in Windows Explorer that have a Blue and Gold shield on them. My understanding is that it signifies you need to run it as an administrator.
This one computer I am currently setting up I created a user "Admin" and added him to the group administrators but when installing software some of the desktop icons still show the blue and gold shield.
My understanding of the blue and gold shield must need updating. What exactly does that signify?
