    It can depend on the location of the app, whether it's a system file etc.
    More info required for a solution.

    Try clicking 'Advanced' on the 'Shortcut' tab for the shortcut's Properties
    dialog box, and checking the relevant option.

    If you turn UAC on, it won't be grayed out. Otherwise, you are already
    running the program as administrator, if you are logged on to an
    administrative account. As it is, it's grayed out because it's an invalid
    choice. In other words, with UAC off, the privilege level is already
    administrative when you run the program.
