Launching a startup program to run as administrator

in #technology6 years ago


The following script shows you how to launch a startup program to run as administrator in Windows 10. This fixes many programs that require elevation and you don't want to launch manually every time.

Almost every online tutorial I came across said to run it as a scheduled task. This is very cumbersome and I hate it, however using the following method is easier and saves you time.

Create a Text file in shell:startup and put the following in it.

 Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell" ) 
  WshShell.Run chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\File\Program.exe" & Chr(34), 0 
  Set WshShell = Nothing
Now save the file as ProgramName.vbs

You are done! Reboot and see that program launch.
