Hey guys -

Is there a way to open GPUz, CPUz, and MSI Afterburner without having to open through run as administrative and listen to obnoxious admin message?

Also, right now it appears GPUz and CPUz with close if I minimize them. Will this get fixed if I can open them in non-admin? If not, is there a way that I can have them minimize without closing them?

Thanks all!

There are a few ways, but most of them make your computer a lot less secure. You can disable UAC prompts completely from the Action Center. (or typing "User Account Control"). However, this means that all programs will not notify you when they need admin rights, and programs that automatically elevate will do so without prompting (malicious software for example)

Another would be to create shortcuts with the runas /user:admin command and provide inline credentials. Not sure how that would work with a Win10 or 8/8.1 e-mail login or with a passwordless account. Might still get a prompt.

If you don't want the UAC prompt sound, you can disable or change the sound effect from "Sound" (little speaker icon in the task bar), Playback Devices, "Sounds" tab.

Hello... #2 when they minimize... they go to the right side ^ up task bar bubble, and not main task bar.
#1 These were made to be very small "APPs" and "executables" "TOOLs" and they are FREE... They Don't require a "Typical Windows install" or Registry install and other Obtrusions into your OS files. Typically a "POP UP" type APP will need Security permission to RUN... unless you turn down or off your UAC Security settings.
