Bypass UAC for Standard Users
This guide will help setup a Desktop Shortcut for Bypassing UAC for programs that require UAC Administrative Permissions and allow Standard Users to run these programs without Administrative Access using a known bypass trick in Task Manager and a Desktop Shortcut,
You can also use this trick to launch the program via command prompt or from scripts.
Open the Start-Menu and typeTask Scheduler then run it
You will now see the Task Scheduler Management Console , To the right click Create Task
A new window to create tasks will appear, Type a Name and Description of the task and then Tick “Run With Highest Privileges” towards the bottom. (Don’t Change any other settings)
NOTE: Remember the name you called this Task as you will need it later.
Skip the Triggers Tab because we want the program to run only when needed via a Desktop Shortcut and not automatically, so goto the Actions Tab then click New
Browse for the program you want your Standard Users to Run without requiring UAC Access
Once you have entered the required information click OK and you will see your task entered into the Actions Tab like the one below.
Step 6 - Skip This Step For Desktop Computers, Its only needed for Laptops.
Goto Conditions Tab and untick “ Start the Task only when computer is Running on AC Power”
Goto The Settings Tab and make sure the following two items are ticked as shown below.
Click OK when done
You will now see your Task listed under Scheduler Library with the Status Ready.
Once you have confirmed the task was created successfully just Close Task Scheduler
Right-Click your Desktop and go New > Shortcut
Once you see the Create Shortcut window enter the following:
C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "TaskName"
Instead of "TaskName" enter the specific name you gave your task with quotations, in it's place.
Remember to include the quotation marks around the TaskName or it will fail to successfully run the Task.
If you created the task under say the "Microsoft" folder the task name changes to C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "\Microsoft\taskname"...You can find out where it was registered by going to the history tab in Task scheduler..
Click Next when you have entered the information and then enter at name for your Desktop Shortcut before clicking OK.
THAT'S IT YOUR All DONE
A new Desktop Shortcut that runs the program you specified with Full Administrator Rights without Requiring UAC prompts or complete Administrator Access, You can customize the shortcut with an icon or other settings if you wish.
