Stop Default 'Run As Administrator

Hello Experts,

Can someone please let me know how to prevent and application from running as an Administrator?

Windows 7

As you can see from the image the default is run as an administrator. However, I don't want the program to run as administrator but I don't know how to change the default.

Clicking "Change Settings for all users" Should allow you to change that.  Not sure why you don't want PuTTy to run as an administrator, as it might give you issues if you try to connect to a device via a serial or serial to usb connection.

Hi pjam,

Sorry for the confusion. As you can see from my last image 'Run as Administrator' isn't checked, but I'm constantly asked to Run as Administrator and if I say no, the application doesn't open.

You can modify UAC temporarily to get rid of the prompt.

Go into control panel then double click on users accounts then click on change user account control settings.
Slide the bar down to never notify.

Remember to change it back after you have completed your task if you want.

Thanks for responding.

I think you solution will, unfortunately I need a more permanent solution to this specific application. You're solution will give users (or this particular user, eLabStudent) with permanent Administrator access to all areas until I turn it off.

I tired the following to allow this user to access this application without being asked for Admin password, but it didn't work.
