For this you have to open the program as “Run as administrator”. However you might wonder which program needs to be opened as administrator or not. There is a method in order to know whether any program has administrator privilege. Lets see in this article, how to do that.

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
After it opens, click Details as shown in the above image.
Step 2: Right-click on Name column and select ” Select columns“.
Step 3: Search for the option “Elevated” in the list and select the checkbox.
