    How do I install a new program to run as Administrator?

    I have a new KS810-P Keyscan Keyboard Scanner and it says I need to run the software as Administrator.
    How do I install that software in Windows 8?
    Please be specific, I find that most Computer people always assume too much.

    Hello Jerry, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could right click on the program's installation file, and click on "Run as administrator" to install it as administrator.

    Afterwards, you could use OPTION FIVE in the tutorial below to always have it "Run as administrator".
