            Allowing Programs to Run as Administrator by Default


            (Note: If the app is on your desktop, you can simply right click on it and click properties and set that program to Run as administrator by clicking advanced in the properties window and checking ‘Run as administrator’.)


            ***Your group policy and user settings may prevent you from changing this setting, if so, have someone with higher administrative rights sign into their account and follow this guide.***




            First, click the Windows Icon and select All Apps


            Next, find the app that you want to allow admin rights for, in this case, we chose Microsoft Office.


            Right click and select ‘More’


            You should then see an option ‘Open File Location’


            This will pull up a file explorer window with the app you want to open highlighted.

            Right click on the app and select 'Properties'. This will pull up another window.

            On this screen, you will select 'Advanced' near the bottom right.

            This will bring up a window allowing you to check ‘Run as Administrator’. Once that is checked, click 'Apply' and then 'OK'.
