Hi, I installed software on my HP (windows 10) .  I installed it as an admin but the user cannot see it.  How do I go about them bring able to use it?  They are a setup as a local, standard user.

The other thing you can do is try running the software from the Start Menu.  It may make the required adjustments at that time and place a working shortcut on the desktop. See if that works.

Does the user have to be an admin to do the install?  If so, after the install, can I change them back to a standard user and the application will still work?

I was able to install the software under the user although they are not an admin.  I'll have to figure out later why a non-admin can do installs but glad I'm can continue for now.  Thanks for your help!
