> anymore.  I have this popup at startup about Kleopatra running as an admin:

You should never ever run programs as Admin on Windows (or as root under
Unix) if there is no need for it.  For an application GUI tool there is
a never such a need - install it as admin but use it with a regualr user

If you run gnupg on the command line as Admin, gnupg may create files
which it can later, running as the regular user, not read or write

Gpg4win mereley added a warning to avoid such pitfalls.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
