Depending on the type of tasks you're doing at the time, some programs require administrator privileges to execute commands and function properly. In such cases, you'd simply right-click It and select Run as administrator. Whilst It serves It's purpose well for yourself, this also means that users sharing your PC, can do the same and perhaps perform tasks against your wishes. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to remove the Run as administrator from the right-click context menu.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. Programs and applications that require administrator permissions to function properly, must be executed as such, by right-clicking the file and selecting Run as administrator as shown below.
This allows the program to run with full unrestricted elevated rights, thereby execute commands and tasks without any restrictions whatsoever. You may however, want to prevent multiple users who're sharing your computer, from doing the same. As a result, I will demonstrate how to completely remove the Run as administrator option from the right-click of the mouse.
To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the option to the right-click menu thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Remove Run As Administrator.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.
Step Two:A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.
Step Three:Here's the setting before the above tweak was applied. I've right-clicked my file named Windows 10 Tips, and Run as administrator Is available as per It's default state.
Step Four:And this Is the result after the Implementation was applied. As you can see, the Run as administrator option has been completely removed. Perfect!
Last Step:So what about If you want to reverse the change, and have Run as administrator back to the right-click menu? Well, simply double-click the Add Run As Administrator.reg file and hit Yes.
Final Thoughts:Although there are a number of ways to run programs and applications with administrator privileges, the most common method Is as per this tutorial, via the right-click of the mouse. I'd say It's safe to assume that the average computer user Is only aware of the Run as administrator option, and that's what makes this so effective.
