Open the options outside of the game from the game folder.

Why do all your games require elevation? Seeing this + considering how many topics with issues you're opening, makes me think there's something severely wrong with your OS.

Thank you it worked, however I'm assuming that there's no way to change the graphic settings?

What's elevation? You mean Administrator Rights? Well, no. None of my games need it, but I keep hearing that running games as Admin can help prevent issues (especially in older games I.E. GTA 3, VC etc etc) So instead of right-clicking Admin every time I want to play a game, I just set them all to Admin.

Don't. There are only a few games which need elevation (and on Steam, you'll almost never need that since games can write to their directory on Steam just fine), so you're being silly by setting that for all games. If anything, you're more likely to screw things up than to help.

Oh really? Well thanks for clearing that up. I'll just use Admin on older games.

Why though? Don't use it at all unless you run into issues.

OK, fair enough.
