Re: Administrative privileges.


Chris, the icon was created automatically when I downloaded it.

Hi Nevzat
If the desktop icon was correctly created, the "Start in" field will be
filled in already. You just need to tab to the next field which is the
shortcut key, then just press the letter you want to use (ctrl+alt will be
added by Windows), tab to OK and press enter.

If it is just asigning the shortcut after you have gone into the
properties tab down to shortcut and asign one.

I think you can only use alt + ctrl + a letter like J for jaws or
another letter.

Make sure you save the settings.

Hi all,

I solved the problem by going to Control Panel and User accounts. But
my problem with assigning a shortcut key to an icon on the desktop
still persists. I press alt+enter to go to properties for the shortcut
I have a problem what to write in the "start in" edit field. The
desktop icon in question is JAWS.
I thank you all for your responses.

Only an administrator account can change a standard account to an
administrator account. That is why I asked if there are any other
on the computer. If there are no other accounts, let me know and I'll
you details of a different method of solving the problem.

You can check if there are any other accounts by pressing Windows+i to
Settings, then press enter on Accounts. Tab to the list of topics and
down to Family and other people and press enter. Tab to the list of
account names and types on the machine and see if there is a user
with administrator privilidges. If there is, get the person to log on
that account, then they could use this settings process to edit your
details and change it from standard to administrator.

Chris, yes, I get an error message saying I need to have administrator
permission. My operating system is Windows 10. I believe I have
standard user account. I tried to change user account and typed my
name and I was told that user account already exists. If I type
administrator would it change to that?

I would have thought you should be able to assign shortcuts as these
personal to your account and don't affect other users, so should not
admin priviledges. If you are using a work computer it maybe that a
corporate group policy is in effect which denies the capability but
would be unlikely.

As Brian asked, is your user account standard or administrator? Could
give us more information, such as operating system being used, work or
computer, is yours the only account on the computer etc.

The process I would use to assign a shortcut key is:
Select desktop icon
Press alt+enter to open properties
Tab to the shortcut key control and press the shortcut letter alone,
CTRL+Alt part of the command is added automatically by Windows
Tab to OK and press enter.

If you get an error after pressing OK, please give full details

Hi Group,

I am trying to assign shortcut keys to icons on the desktop, but it
won't go through as I am told I have no administrative privileges.
Using NVDA how do I get administrative privilege on my computer?
Your response will be greatly appreciated.
