A program that is performed regularly and that triggers a validation request of the UAC to allow the program to run as administrator in Microsoft Windows 7, can tease, since Windows does not save the edited UAC.
We can create a shortcut that will directly open the application with elevated privileges without that one is obliged to validate the request for authorization of the UAC.
Note: All screenshots in the tutorial section have click to zoom feature. Click after the page load is complete and a border around the particular screenshot appears.
The authorization of the UAC is already included in the execution of the shortcut.
This trick works on both Windows 7 on Windows Vista.
To illustrate this tutorial, we will create a shortcut to the program Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, then that will run directly with the elevation of privilege without any request from the UAC is to validate.
Create a new task:
Click Start, type taskschd.msc in the Search box and strike Enter key from the Keyboard:
Task Scheduler will open. In the right pane, click Create Task:
On the General tab, type the name Malwarebytes and check the box to Run with highest privileges:
It will give a notification for not entering the location, just click OK :
In the Actions tab, click the New button:
The New Action window opens.
In Action, select Start a program and click on Browse:
Find the executable program (mbam.exe in our example).
Click on the Exe file:
The action of the new task is created, click OK:
The new task named Malwarebytes appears in the Task Scheduler Library.
Close the Task Scheduler.
Create a shortcut to run the task:
On the right-click the desktop, select New, then Shortcut.
In the location of the item, type
schtasks / run / tn-name task
In our example, we must type
schtasks / run / tn Malwarebytes
Enter the name :
Malwarebytes (in our example) and click Finish.
A new shortcut will appear on the Windows 7 desktop named Malwarebytes.
Change the icon by going to Right click over the shortcut > Properties > Change Icon.
Now double click on the shortcut, the program will run with elevated privileges without having to approve the UAC, as the task set allows the program to run as administrator in Windows 7.

Thank you very much for sharing the information :)
I have test it for sure.
You shall mention it to others, so that everybody can see that better methods exists.
No we will never recommend to use the program (atleast for the current version) due to:
1. <50% score marked by Softpedia users.
2. It has known compatibility issue with 64 bit version of Windows 7, as mentioned by Microsoft Answers users.
Further, a basic user should never use a tool just to enjoy "easiness" of a shortcut-creating program without knowing its implications and problems. Creating a shortcut to run a program with elevated privileges under Windows 7 environment is intended for Advanced users only. Advanced users will obviously not bother to do few steps manually.
We would recommended to use the manual method for creating a shortcut to run a program with elevated privileges under Windows 7 as few program as possible, preferably for Antimalware, Antivirus or other Security related programs only.
I Love thecustomizewindows. I really do. I would even buy you flowers and dinner for what you have shared with us! Thanks to you.
