How to Create Administrator Mode Shortcuts Without UAC Prompts in Windows 10

Running programs in administrator mode on Windows 10 often triggers the User Access Control (UAC) password prompt. However, there is a way to create shortcuts that launch applications with administrator privileges without the UAC prompt. In this article, we will show you how to create these administrator mode shortcuts in Windows 10.

Create a Scheduled Task

To create an administrator mode shortcut, you can start by creating a scheduled task:

  1. Open the Task Scheduler by searching for “taskschd.msc” in the Start menu.
  2. Right-click the “Task Scheduler Library” category on the left side and select “New Folder”.
  3. Name the folder as desired, for example, “MyApps”.
  4. Select the newly created folder.
  5. In the Actions panel on the right, click “Create Task…”.
  6. Provide a name for the task and enable the “Run with highest privileges” option (this is crucial for running the task in administrator mode).
  7. On the Action tab, click “New”.
  8. Click “Browse…” and select the program you want to run with administrator privileges.
  9. Add any required parameters for the application, if necessary.

Manually Start the Scheduled Task

To manually start the scheduled task:

  1. Use the “schtasks.exe” command-line tool to run the scheduled task. For example, to start the task named “MyAppsSERVICESMMC”, use the command: SCHTASKS.EXE /RUN /TN MyAppsSERVICESMMC.
  2. Alternatively, you can run the command: SCHTASKS.EXE /RUN /TN task_name, where “task_name” is the name of the task you created.

Create Desktop Shortcuts

You can create desktop shortcuts to easily run each scheduled task:

  1. Right-click on the desktop and choose “New” > “Shortcut”.
  2. In the “Type the location of the item” field, enter the command line for the scheduled task. For example: SCHTASKS.EXE /RUN /TN MyAppsREGEDIT.
  3. Give a name for the shortcut and click “Finish”.

Running the Task Minimized

If you prefer the task to run minimized, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the shortcut and choose “Properties”.
  2. In the “Run” dropdown menu, select “Minimized”.
  3. Click “OK”.

Additional Information
