Disabling administrator privileges prompt in Windows 10 for selected apps

How to disable the annoying admin prompt in Windows for specific applications? Don’t want to disable User Account Control (UAC) entirely for your windows installation, but are annoyed with the admin prompts which pop up over and over again?

Apparently it is possible to do so by using a windows app called Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK). I found out about it after finding this thread on the microsoft forum, and I shall be grateful to the posts by compat and Mike-EEE. Quoting both here.

If someone is having problems with installing this in Windows 10, make sure you install it from here:


I was able to install the 1709 flavor on my 1803.

Worth noting: uncheck all the default boxes and tick the first one, which is the one that you need (Compatibility Administrator).
