I used the same terminology as the computer. When I use that short-cut for LMS in that dialogue box, I can start LMS in administrator mode.
    I thought that might be it. Any of those "Hidden Icons" can be dragged down onto the System Tray, and likewise dragged onto the "up" arrow to hide them.

    What startup option did you choose for LMS? If you're using the automatic startup as I suggested earlier you will need the LMS control panel quite seldom.

    Administrator Privileges

    Hi,

    This comes down to something you have and use and think it's the norm and only when it's not there, you miss it!
    My computer system and my music have been down for a few months for various reasons. Therefore my nightly updates were way out of date. I know it shouldn't have made much dfference, but it did, somehow.
    Anyway to cut along story short, I now have administrator privileges back, as and when I need them. I needed to change various aspects to suit a new setup, hence I was having the problems I outlined.
    It's just the right click of the mouse wasn't working to become an administrator again and in fact, at times, it's still not working, but by using the "hidden icon", I can get round the problem.
    I still don't understand why the right mouse click doesn't work all the time, but the use of the icon works everytime. Being hidden, I had effectively forgotten it was there!
    Thank you all for your help and advice.
    Dave M.
