roirraWedorehT Posted August 26, 2015 Share Posted August 26, 2015 I'm the only one having problems when trying to launch something as Administrator? For example I type powershell, right click and then Run as Administrator and I get this Popup error This program does not have a file associated with it for performing this action. Only happens if I use the search, works ok if I go to All apps, Powershell etc... I just tried PowerShell using SiB's search and run as Admin and it worked fine for me. Just looking for information: you are getting the yes/no prompt for elevation, or you're not getting that too? By the way (as a workaround) you know you can 1) set PowerShell as default in right-click menu instead of Command Prompt, and 2) you can right click the Start Button and choose either PowerShell or PowerShell as Admin from there? What happens if you do that, does it work right? No prompt asking for elevation, just an error with Accept button. It happens with almost all executables for example Notepad++ Sounds like you got some other problem going on unrelated to SiB. What happens if you try the same thing from the Start Screen? Maybe try a "Reset this PC" from the Action Center/All Settings/Update & Security. I have the Windows search(The one next to start) completely disabled so I can't try that. SiB has an option to add a Start screen shortcut to the top of SiB's Start Menu. I think there's other ways of opening the original Windows 10 start menu, but I'd have to look in SiB's configuration for that. If you enable the Start screen shortcut, click it to go to the Start screen, type Powershell and right-click to run as Admin, does the same thing happen? No matter what, I'd say either a Reset or a fresh reinstall was in order. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
