How to Run an App as Admin by Default on Windows 11

First, you’ll need to locate the executable file of the app you want to always open with elevated privileges. This can be the file in File Explorer, or it can be the app’s desktop shortcut.

Once you’ve located the file, right-click it to display its context menu. Next, click “Properties” or just press Alt+Enter.

Click Properties.

The app’s Properties menu will appear. If you opened the app’s Properties menu from the EXE file in File Explorer, you’ll be in the General tab. If you opened it from the desktop shortcut, you’ll be in the shortcut tab.

Either way, click the “Compatibility” tab.

Click Compatibility.

In the Settings group of the Compatibility tab, check the box next to “Run this Program as an Administrator,” click “Apply” to apply this new option, and then click “OK” to close the window.

Apply the option to always open the app as an admin.

Now the next time you run the program, it will open with admin rights by default.

Using this tip can save a lot of time and energy in the long run.
