Stop apps asking for password RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having an issue <g class="gr_ gr_37 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="37" id="37">on</g> my son's computer. Every time he launches a specific game, it requires my password.
    I have tried setting to run as administrator, but that hasn't worked.

    Strangely my other kids are not having this issue on their computers with the same game. All of them have standard user accounts and are NOT administrators.

  • Which game is it?

    You may repost the same to a gaming forum (best if you submit to the specific game's forum) to get a better assistance.

  • it is Fortnite, which is launched via the EPIC game launcher, so same issue with any epic games.

  • you are obviously confusing game logins with windows logins.

    This is nothing to do with the game login, that is working just fine.

    The issue is a windows permission issue. It requires administrator permission to launch the game.
