using the admin account to create shortcuts in folders of other users

Is it possible to be able to edit other users of data such as creating a shortcut for them without having to restart the computer? The same happens for messing around in Program Files, Program Files (x 86) or the Start Menu.
I'm looking forward and a simple operation that used to take seconds XP is a bread PITA in Vista and 7 because I now need to log in as administrator, disable UAC, restart, wait, you connect again as the admin, my simple management operation, re - enable user annoyance control and then restart it again.
What used to take 2 minutes now takes 10-15 minutes because of all what to expect as the computer to reboot and let me, connect.

Am I missing something? A way to drag some files where I want to make a shortcut and you NOT say "Windows cannot create the shortcut you want here. Do you want to put me on the desktop instead?

I'm supposed to be the administrator, these things really annoy me. UAC is useful to raise my usual account, but it's really annoying when it blocks the admin to do something. At least, it could give an admin logged in as the administrator the opportunity to do what he wants to do when messing around with files and folders. Even an annoying "are you sure?" would be better than being completely blocked.

If there is a way to do it, let me know. I'm not talking about 'doing the shortcut on the desktop, then copy it where you want', I want to just open an Explorer window and be able to do what I want, as I often need to perform multiple operations and the delay being the guest for everyone is really annoying and slows me down.
Especially when I compare it to Windows 95, 98, 98SE and XP, I've done this sort of thing with extensive experience.

Windows9x version boosted BACK with only laughable security restrictions, it is not a good argument in support of your complaint. Your problem is caused by UAC, which was introduced in Vista. You can work around it by running Windows Explorer under elevated as follows:

  1. Start an elevated command prompt.
  2. Kill explorer.exe from this command prompt.
  3. Explorer.exe from this command prompt.
You can now use Windows Explorer to access the folders of other users.

    I was doing annoyed recently how my computer asked "permission to the administrator. I have an Admin account and a guest account, but I use only the Admin account.

    The feature you are referring is called User Account Control, or UAC for short. It is supposed to make your computer more secure, however, if you despise as many other people do, fortunately for you, there is a simple way to get rid of him.

    1. open start > Control Panel

    2. in the search box at top right, type in uacand select change user account control settings

    3. to turn off UAC, move the slider to never notify position. Save your settings and to provide your final confirmation. You will need to restart your PC for the changes to take effect.

    Edit the registry key doesn't help either not that my account has no rights to add a key
    Thank you

    According to Microsoft: "This isn't a problem... it's a feature"...

    The normal behavior for Windows XP is to hide the built-in Administrator account once another user account is created.  Not rebuild your machine again because it happen.  One way around this problem is to create another administrator-capable user as an unprivileged user.  Then, when the account is not built-in Administrator, you will have a visible connection as admin user.

    As it is now, your solution is simple.  On the normal startup login screen, hit twice by the Ctrl-Alt-Delete key combination.  This will bring up a login screen standard where you can enter the user name and password (if any) of the built-in Administrator and you connect to your computer to a normal startup mode and make the changes you want.  (I recommend that you create a 2nd Admin user with the control panel of users)



  • cannot access the files of another user with the admin account

    I'm on a computer with Windows Vista 64-bit home problems.
    I normally have the computer configured to connect automatically to a non privileged user and rarely use the admin account.
    Recently, I downloaded an update (Finally, more like a relocation to the latest version) and realized that I need the admin account to install properly for all users that UAC would make things a royal PITA with a zillion prompts.

    I quickly disconnected and logged in as admin. Then, I realized that the installation file has been stored in the "downloads" folder in my regular account.
    Worse still, I could not access this folder, or I couldn't tab of future security. All I could do was to 'change the property' to my admin account, but I really didn't block me on these issues. Even from Explorer using "run as administrator" gave me problems, although the DIR command in would be the list of people.

    I used the "change user" function to log my account regular and checked the Security tab and saw that the "Administrators" Group had already read and checked 'total control '. Why can't access the admin account? As an admin with XP, I had free access to everything I wanted to leave that I wanted.

    What happens if I was a parent and wanted to check to make sure that my child was not software piracy or download illegal music that would get stuck with the fines because I'm his guardian? How would I go about checking his records?

    What happens if I was an employer at a small office using working groups and wanted to ensure that the employee was not downloading pornography?

    How can I use the powers of the administrator to access other files (regular) user?
    Why do I still need to ask this question? It was automatic under NT, 2000, XP and the various servers at least as high as 2003.

    I found the problem, it was ANOTHER problem with Norton Security Suite for Comcast.
    I uninstalled and did not only to release 100 GIGABYTES of space, my boot time has been cut to a quarter of the former time, and this problem has disappeared.

  • How can I use my admin account when I forgot my computer password?

    I was recently reading to make a password reset disk. I did it successfully. I also redesigned and strengthened my index of password to make it just something I'll remember.

    It comes to my laptop. I'm the only one using it.

    A couple of years, I've had problems with one of the Service Packs. I had a very good help from Microsoft. One of the people helping me explained how to connect using the Admin account to display system information. I think she used the DOS prompt to change a setting. Then the Welcome screen showed the Admin account. But, if I can't log on my computer to do this, I can't do the account Admin appear on the Welcome screen. Is there another way to display the administrator account on the home screen?

  • Parental control on the Admin account problems

    A few months ago, I created a new account on my computer for work only.  I set the parental controls on the new account and only the work account.  I got by without my computer for work then off the parental control.  Now, I'm unable to download games without him asking for a password.  I don't know what password I had used since I don't end up need it and none I've tried have worked.  So, how can I, as an administrator, disable this feature?  I have consulted the parental control and done everything I have seen/read that was recommended, but it won't allow me to change the settings on my own admin account without establishing a second admin account.  So, how can I remove this feature from the admin, only the admin?  It does not accept any next to the admin account, and even then it won't take my password.

    I work at it for a few weeks now and tried everything I can think of.  Today I spent most of the day trying to get this thing to work.

    More details on what is happening-
    -I'm going to download a game on the net while connected to my admin account
    -Everything works until the final stage when he usually asks for a general permission to my antivirus
    -A pop up appears which reads: you do not have the necessary permissions to use all the features of the program you are about to run.  You can run this program as a different user or continue to run the program as long as the current user.
    -Click on the current user and it closes, download fault.
    -Enter a password for the administrator and it says I have a user name or password invalid.
    -Enter my username and password and it closes, download fault.

    Can someone please help with this?

    Hello KS. GAL.86,

    Is the problem with the account of the work that you had created that has activated the Parental control? You can only configure Parental controls on a standard account and not an administrator account.

    If so, then create a new account that has not activated the parental control.

    Is the issue that you are experiencing that you can not download programs as an administrator?
    What is the exact error you get when you download a program?

    It cannot have anything to do with Parental control.

    Please answer back with more details and information.

    Thank you

  • I can't perform a restore of the system after the removal of the admin account?

    Original title: admin deleted, now impossible to restore

    I bought my laptop from my work for personal use and remove the admin users. When you try to download anything it gives me an error now, "the requested operation requires an elevation" when I put my user name and password. How can I solve this problem? Can't even do a restore without credentials. When I looked at the accounts, mine is the only one listed. Is there another way I can find out what is the admin account? My work told me a few options for the password, but was not really sure because they put in place so long ago.

    Remove the admin account amounted to throw away the key of your safe. A better idea would have been to create and test an alternative admin account. Here's how you can recover from this disaster:

    1. Set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
    2. Start the computer with your Windows 7 repair CD.
    3. Press a key when prompted to boot from the DVD.
    4. Select 'PC Repair' in the menu.
    5. Select 'Repair' when prompted.
    6. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    7. Configure Windows to a point before you deleted the admin account.
    8. Plan ahead a little and create, test and document an alternative admin account, same as you have a spare emergency House key. This will save you a lot of trouble.
