Admin rights Quirks in Windows 7

Here are a few lessons i’ve learnt in my struggle with admin rights of win 7:

1.
When explorer is not running as admin while a process like Word is, then u cannot drag a doc from explorer to word
2.
When u open the same doc by doudle clicking on it, then it opens in word but in another instance of word which is not a admin process …even though there is another process running as admin for word
3.
When u then modify this doc and try to save it, u cannot as word is not running as admin and hence opens the doc in read only view.
4.
So then how to do this ?
Simply run explorer as admin by running cmd as admin, then killing all explorer instances from task mgr. and then running it from cmd by > explorer.exe

Then double clicking on doc will open it as admin always and hence no issues in saving etc.

Also i still get random pop ups asking if i want to perform actions as admin, even for things like copy paste …
so basically i want

For this it tried :

found another crazy thing that i get issues like the UAC prompt and read only files only in case i don’t have the file in my user folder : C:\Users\tarun.khemani

But when i have the files there there are no issues …

AWESOME FIND

ALSO, for all ur directories allow security full access for everyone to the root itself …this will get rid of all edge cases that lead to stupid issues…..
