I follow sound (and Microsoft) security practice and have two Windows accounts. A standard account for general use, and an Admin account for installing software.
When I install Handbrake from my User account Windows prompts (as expected) for my Admin credentials and the installation completes. However there is no entry in the Start menu or desktop icon for the program.
When I login into my Admin account I find a Start Menu item as expected, and a Desktop icon. This is no use to me as I need to use it from my User account.
If I login to my Admin account and install from there the Start menu item is created but it is in the account specific part of the Start menu but not in the Public section.
It is a nuisance to have to manually create a Start Menu item in the proper place (which of course would also work from the Admin account as well).
Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Install Handbrake on a Windows 10 computer configured with a Standard User and Admin accounts and then try to run run it from a Standard User (as Microsoft recommends) account.
There is no way to launch it from a Standard User account as installed because there is no Start menu item or desktop shortcut
Handbrake does work if I manually tweak the settings and create a start menu item but I should not have to do this!
it is not possible for me to recommend this program until there is a solution. I evaluate software for my local computer club and maintain our recommended programs site. This is a great pity as it looks as it Handbrake is an excellent program.
HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 10 Home addition with a Standard User account and an Admin account
