QuestionMapped Drives & Administrator Rights Pin
Richard Andrew x6411-Jul-23 7:11
professionalRichard Andrew x6411-Jul-23 7:11 
Here's something that's been perplexing me for a while:

My user account on a Windows 10 PC has several mapped drives that access various servers on the LAN. I'm able to use them just fine.

However, when I launch any program "As Admin", the mapped drives are not there, inside the program. It's as if I'm running as a different user when I launch programs as Admin.

But the perplexing part is that my user account is a member of the Adminstrators group.

So why doesn't it launch the programs as me, but with administrative rights?

And if it's not launching the programs as me, then who is it launching them as?



The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
