How to make Administrator mode shortcuts in Windows 10 without UAC prompts

User Access Control (UAC) prompts in Windows 10 can be irritating, particularly if you execute a program that needs permission from the administrator often. Fortunately, there is a method to make a shortcut that won’t prompt you to get to User Access Control (UAC). This method consists of setting up a scheduled task for you to run the target application in Admin mode. You can then produce a desktop shortcut that informs the task to run, the next time you click the shortcut, and this will bypass the UAC prompt. In this article, we will guide you through the whole procedure to make Administrator mode shortcuts in Windows 10 without UAC prompts.
