How do I disable administrator prompt in Windows 8?
I always used Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (SP1) with User Account Control completely turned off - the slider in the settings window was set to the bottom most value. I was then able to copy files into programs / system folders without any additional confirmation ("You need the rights to copy into this folder..." --> "Continue") and all my programs were able to start with no problems.
Now I use Windows 8 Pro x64 (RTM), and I set the slider to the same value again. However, I still need to confirm copying or changing files in programs / system folders, which is pretty nasty. But worst is that some programs can't start anymore. For example, one program always complains about not being able to write into the temporary directory, the command prompt can't create a link in my user profile folder with mklink, another program can't hook the needed system routines to enable window snapping.
If I run all these programs explicitly with administrative rights, they work as expected and like in Windows 7. For me it looks like UAC doesn't beg me anymore with dark-screen confirmations, but I still do not automatically get elevated rights when starting programs.
I found one way to fix this, but for only one shortcut at a time: Right click the shortcut, click the "Advanced" button and check "Run as administrator". However, I want this to be done automatically.
Do I have to configure additional settings in Windows 8 to make it behave like in Windows 7 (user account settings, group policies...)?
