2.) Useful info from (c) Microsoft about Interface Privilege!
The Windows Integrity levels define different levels of trust-worthiness for applications and programs running at different levels of secure access. Most applications in Windows 10, 8.1 and other Windows OS run at a standard user level of access at the medium integrity level. Applications and Programs at the medium integrity level do not experience any restrictions on how they interact with other applications and with data at the medium integrity level. Specific tasks, programs, services or applications that require the administrative rights run at a full and high integrity level for Windows. In the most case the Windows system services run in system integrity level, this is so because there are restrictions on their ability to interact with the default desktop, and they often run with powerful system privileges. A few applications that have been designed to run with the fewest rights possible, such as Protected Mode Windows Internet Explorer, can run with a low integrity level.

- This is kind of weird. I've tried to experiment again with File manager, and this is what I've got, when start it as Admin, I have this icon, and I can NOT transfer files from my emails:, when I start it normally, then I have this icon: and I can Drag & Drop the files from my emails or 7zip without any problems. Originally I set my shortcut to "Open as Administrator", and that's probably why I couldn't Drag & Drop the files.But this is pretty weird, because if anything, then it should be the opposite. If you need any info about my other settings, please let me know.?
