Pinned Rider in taskbar lose "Run as administrator" every time windows started



I've pinned Rider to taskbar and set to "Run as administrator" every time I run Rider.

But it's always reset every time I start my windows. I think the reason is that the Target path is always changed every time windows started.

Is there a way to retain "Run as administrator" for Rider pinned in taskbar?

I've reproduced this issue, and indeed the setting "Run as Administrator"  for a shortcut becomes disabled after windows restarting. Here is an issue on our tracker. As a workaround, you can hold down Ctrl and Shift keys and then click on a program pinned to the taskbar to run it as administrator. Alternatively, you can set up this property for an .exe file and Toolbox app will not rewrite it on its startup.

Thank you for pointing our attention issue.

Kind regards,

Setting this on the exe as described above works. It is reset when Rider is updated though.

When starting Rider from the toolbox there is a setting to run it as admin but that only applies when starting rider from the toolbox. But I don't know if that is persisted between rider version upgrades.

Yes, it is.
