How can I remove the annoyance of being asked to run certain programs as admin. So, how can I log in permanently as admin to avoid this? Thanks for any help!

Hello, to block that message, you can configure that App which you use frequently to always run as Administrator. Try this: Right-click on the app’s executable and select Properties, then click on the Compatibility tab. Here, you’ll find a number of options that may enable older software to run on modern versions of Windows. The feature we’re interested in, however, is Run this program as an administrator. This has the same result as option found in the right-click menu, but it makes the setting permanent, so that the app will always run in administrator mode regardless of how it’s launched.
