I have my script running with #RequreAdmin but when I click on my Button to launch edge with a URL it opens it with a mortal edge and not Admin Edge. Im a noob so i dont really know how to script¬†ūüôÉ. The main function of this is run it as admin and when i click on my buttons they will open in admin rights already.¬†

I forgot to add i will have edge open as a normal account and when i click the button i want it to open a new edge with admin rights. im trying to do this without a .lnk to run or a bat. i just want 1 program to rule them all type thing if possible.

Why not just use Edge profiles, for example I have my standard profile for browsing, but for Azure (we manage multiple tenants) I have a different profile for each tenant.  Each profile  Profiles are separate from each other and hold their own settings, passwords, bookmarks, history etc...

Would suggest asking them to create a security group and deny the GPO for the techs, opening any browser with admin rights especially domain admin or helpdesk admin rights would be a risk to your organisation.

One workaround is to remove the #RequireAdmin, ask techs to run your script using "Shift+Right Click" ¬Ľ¬†¬†"Run as different user" to logon with your admin credentials, then you can choose which apps should be elevated using ShellExecute, ie.

;~ The following will run CMD with admin priviliges
ShellExecute("CMD.exe", "", "", "RunAs")
;~ This will open Edge as the user profile but not elevated

Right now we do right click each program and run as admin then put our tech account info to do what we need or do this to our shortcut to do it faster "%windir%\system32\runas.exe /savecred /user:domain\techaccount". Right now im just trying to learn and maybe help out others with my script. To me its weird that #Require Admin is not elevating Edge when I click it. I can maybe also just do this $ARS ="C:\Temp\ARS1.lnk" and just put my shortcuts there and it can run that way but I wanted it all run in the script itself.
