In the Properties, Compatibility (or Shortcut) tab I have ticked the "Run as administrator" box for certain applications that need administrator privileges.
When I then run these applications Windows still shows me the UAC prompt (eg: Do you want to let this program make changes to your computer?).
Why am I still asked this question after I have explicitly told Windows to always run the program as Administrator?
I realize I can turn the UAC prompt level down so that I no longer see any prompts, however the UAC prompt is still valuable for new or unknown programs, so I do not want prompts completely disabled.
For programs that I trust, it is just an annoying distraction.
(I'm also familiar with the creating a task in the scheduler with highest privileges, but that doesn't answer the question as to why UAC still prompts even when Run as Administrator is set.)
