Normally, when an application wants to write to
C:\Program Files, a pop up is shown that asks me to confirm to elevate this application into admin mode so that it can write to
With Google Chrome this doesn't seem to be the case. I'm not running Chrome with admin privileges but still it seems to be able to automatically update itself and write to
C:\Program Files without asking me for confirmation first.
How does this work? All other applications seem to need explicit confirmation before they are able to write to
C:\Program Files but Google Chrome doesn't. It can just write to
C:\Program Files even though I'm not running it with admin permissions.
