    Help disabling need for admin password

    Is there any way to disable the need for an admin password anytime someone tries to download something short of disabling the admin

    Hello Flashfire and welcome to Eight forums,
    If you are downloading metro apps make sure you are logged into a Microsoft Account to avoid any issues that may occur.

    Are you on a Administrator or a standard user account? If you are on a administrator account, you can try following the steps on this guide Tutorial: How to make Windows 8 understand you ARE the Administrator.

    If you are using a Standard Account you may be be secured by Family Safety which has web filtering enabled. This may be the issue not allowing you to download files without a admin password. To remove this you can follow this tutorial on Family Safety
    Family Safety Web Filtering - Set and Manage in Windows 8

    Hope I have helped!
