Okay, thank you. I changed the SuRun settings so I can see Control Panel in the context menu now. Thank you again.

Hello Kay,

"Whoops. Totally forgot to answer. Sorry"

"If you restrict a SuRunner ("User can only run predefined programs with elevated rights") and select "Control Panel As Administrator" you'll be asked for Administrator credentials."

"Would this be sort of the stuff you wish?"

Yes. "Control Panel As Administrator" would be seen in the context menu when right-clicking on the desktop and you would be asked for Administrator credentials.

Hello,

Is it possible to add a new context menu feature?

'Control Panel as Administrator' in the context menu on the desktop.

1. Right-click the desktop:

SuRun: Start Control Panel as Administrator

2. Then enter the administrator password

This would become a permanent context menu feature. This would done by right-clicking the desktop without having to check the box under Shell Integration in Common Settings in the SuRun Settings.

Thank you. I was not aware of this SuRun key in the registry. So when the 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights' check box is ticked, it saves the setting here: HKLM\Security\SuRun.

Hello,

v1.2.1.3b2

1. Right-click on the installer executable file
2. Select 'SuRun: Start as Administrator'
3. Type in the admin password
User:        PCName\Administrator
Password: password
4. Click the check box 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights'
5. Click OK

My question is when the 'Automagically run this program with elevated rights' check box is ticked, where does SuRun save the elevated rights settings? I looked and could not find any saved settings.

Thank you.

"If a restricted SuRunner tries to run a non validated Program with elevated rights, SuRun will now ask for Administrator credentials to launch the program elevated in the user's context."

Excellent feature. Thank you.

Subject: Explorer Context Menu
Edit:
Current release candidate 1.2.1.3 is here:
http://forum.kay-bruns.de/post/4076

Right-click menu:

'Run as Administrator' - Microsoft Windows default
'Start as Administrator' - SuRun program

Regarding the future release of v1.2.1.3 of SuRun, I was wondering if you could rename the explorer context menu wording from 'Start as Administrator' to 'SuRun as Administrator'.

This would avoid any confusion with the Microsoft Windows 'Run as Administrator'.

I have users who always get the two confused.

As always, thank you. And thank you for SuRun.

Regards.

Okay, thank you for your reply. When it comes to UAC I have never trusted it by itself as a security wall against unwanted malware execution. I still believe in a Standard (Limited) user account along with Software Restriction Policies in place. I use SuRun as a Whitelist tool to elevate privileges for various programs that don't run well in a Standard user account. When I install SuRun, I always make sure the user is a member of the 'Users' group. Thus, I always disable UAC. Starting with Windows 8, with the UAC slidebar all the way down, UAC is still enabled in the registry under policies\system. Windows 10 is the same. This is a change from Windows 7. If you disable the UAC registry setting in 8 or 10, the Windows Apps will be disabled by default. This can be annoying when trying to make changes to many workstations with UAC still enabled in the registry.

Okay, now I understand. Thanks for the explanation. Would you recommend adding the SuRun user to the Windows 'Users' group manually for extra security?
