    Default approval for copying?

    Whenever I want to copy a file or create a shortcut to a file on the desktop, it always asks for approval. Is there a way to default that to "yes"? Often the approval window will be buried on the desktop somewhere, and the operation is halted until the window is resolved.

    Regards,

    I'm not seeing that issue, can make a Copy of a shortcut that is on the Desktop or can Create a shortcut to a Folder and it appears on the Desktop, no permission prompt.

    Could it be that the UAC slider is set to the highest position? That guarantees constant asks.

    Roland, no, the UAC is turned down.
