How can I remove "run as administrator" from Context Menus?


  • Our client has Win7 Enterprise on their laptops. They do not have administrator rights. Still they call and claim the "Administrator thing" is not working. Yes, I work at a h3ll desk. How could we remove that option...? When we remote all we need is shift+right click - run as another user. Thank you!

  • Hi,

    We can edit the registry keys to achieve it. Note: Please backup the registry keys before modifying it.

    1. Open Notepad.exe.

    2. Paste the following commands.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00






    3. Save as remove.reg file.

    4. Double click it.
