This is on a domain-attached workstation on which I have local admin access. I'm not sure if our IT department set a GPO or something, but every single program I launch-- regardless of whether I double-click it, choose "Run as Administrator" from context menu, "Open" from context menu, or launching by opening an associated file-- runs as Administrator.
This is handy for some things. I like always launching PowerShell and Visual Studio as admin. But some installers that are meant to install only to my local user profile, like VS Code, are still launching as Admin. That's not good.
My UAC controls are set to "Never Notify," but changing it to any other setting above that does not change the behavior.
How can I switch this off? I only want to launch certain programs consistently as admin-- not everything.
