UAC Trust Shortcut, Launch Programs Without UAC Prompts

23 Lug/10

Microsoft introduced the User Account Control (UAC) feature in Windows Vista. The security feature quickly became a nuisance for Vista users, as it simply displayed to many prompts to users as there were no options to remember settings or reduce the level for trustworthy programs. Microsoft has toned down the feature in Windows 7, where it is less obtrusive and annoying.

Windows users have several options to get rid of UAC prompts. It is for instance possible to change the UAC level. This is usually not recommended as it results in a decrease in security.

UAC Trust Shortcuts for Windows Vista and Windows 7 offers another option. The program creates new shortcuts that execute programs without UAC prompts.

The application is offered as a 32-bit and 64-bit edition. It displays a minimalistic interface upon execution. New shortcuts are created by adding a program name and path. It is possible to copy and paste the path into the program window, or to use the file browser to select an executable manually. A click on Add Now adds the program shortcut to the Windows Desktop.

The newly created shortcuts have a blank icon, it might be a good idea to change the icon in the properties after creation to make the identification easier.

A double-click on a shortcut opens the linked program in a new application window. This also means that a program shortcut is placed in the taskbar, so that two icons (the shortcut and the started program) are present after an application has been started this way.

UAC Trust Shortcuts is a handy portable software for Windows 7 and Vista, and especially for users who have to start programs regularly that trigger an UAC prompt on every startup.

The software is available for download at the developer’s website.
