I'm trying to copy a downloaded file to a program but get the "Administrator permission required" message. I am the administrator on this home computer and believe that I can change settings of the UAC.


Understanding that , if I lower the settings will that allow me to copy this program?


Additionally, once I have done that, can I once again go back, undo this and return to the previous higher settings?


Here's hoping that someone can understand my poorly phrased question,
