1 Answer 1

To create a shortcut in Windows 7 that would run as Administrator without triggering a UAC prompt, you create a task in Task Scheduler for it.

If the item is a batch file, How do I set up a desktop shortcut to a batch file which will run as administrator.

Good luck!

Oh dear, I just realized that I also asked this exact question too. –  William C Sep 22 '11 at 22:34
    
P.S. Note that the "admin" shortcut points to schtasks.exe, so this shortcut and the "normal" shortcut can exist separately on the taskbar. –  William C Sep 22 '11 at 22:45
    
Actually, it's OK for it to trigger a UAC prompt. –  JCCyC Sep 24 '11 at 7:03
