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!

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
