MSIX - Suppressing UAC for the Shortuts?

Occasional Contributor

Is there a way where we can suppress the UAC prompt (e.g. run as invoker) for the application shortcuts in the MSIX applications?

Thanks for the question.  We need to better understand your scenario to assist you.


MSIX by default is a per user installer and does not require elevation.  If you are seeing an elevation prompt, it is because this app specifically added an elevation capability, because it wanted to elevate.  If you try to suppress the elevation, it is possible this app will no longer work correctly.


Why would you want to suppress the UAC prompt for a non-admin install?
