Windows 10 Ate My S&T/AR

Terry, the Technet article does not seem to apply to Win 10.

Ken, I do not see in Win 10 the old way of creating a desktop shortcut by right-clicking on the desktop, selecting new, then shortcut, and then selecting the program file. In other words, I am not given the option of adding a program file link to my desktop. It is as if I do not have "Administrator" powers. I really don't get this Windows 10.

There are other ways of putting a shortcut link on the desktop (I can "pin" a program ("app") to the Start-up or I can create a shortcut to it in the folder view) but not the above way of old. But I do not see how to permanently change the properties to Run as Administrator. I still have to click on that for each start-up.

Win10 still allows both of those things. See the attached screen clips. Sometimes the "New" function is farther down the right-click menu list and sometimes it's near the top like the old style. I'm not sure why it does that.

When you right-click a shortcut on the desktop, the "Run As Administrator" setting is on the "Shortcut" tab under the "Advanced" button.

Have you checked under Control Panel > User Accounts to see if you are set up as an Administrator or not? I am.

The article applies to Win 10. You just have to go to the exe file, select properties and compatibilities. Drag a shortcut of the exe to the desktop if the original does not respond to your changes.

So now you have two ways to achieve the same end in Win10.
