Run Everything as an Administrator in Windows 10 by Default – Same Windows 7 Behavior

To run everything as an administrator in Windows 10, there are several settings that must be changed.  In Windows 7, you would only have to disable UAC for the current user:

This isn't good enough in Windows 10.  You have to disable UAC for the current user AND do the following:

Run gpedit.msc to open the Local Group Policy Editor. Expand Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, and Security Options. Four settings need to be updated:

  1. Set "User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode" to Elevate without prompting.
  2. Set "User Account Control: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation" to Disabled.
  3. Set "User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode" to Disabled.
  4. Set "User Account Control: Only elevate UIAccess applications that are installed in secure locations" to Disabled.

The LGPE automatically saves all changes, so exit it and reboot.
