How Wireguard Can Run on Windows 10 Standard User

note. this thread doesnt work on Windows 10 Home

To make Wireguard Windows app better for Standard User, you need to make your users a member of the “Network Configuration Operators” group.

This allows you to enableor disable (or choose if you have multiple) the VPN without needing to be a member of the Administrators group.

To do this ypu also need to add a line to the Registry.

Here’s the script

@echo off

REM Add all standard users to the "Network Configuration Operators" group
for /F "skip=1" %%U in ('wmic UserAccount where "LocalAccount=True and Disabled=False" get Name') do (
    net localgroup "Network Configuration Operators" "%%U" /add
    echo User "%%U" has been added to the "Network Configuration Operators" group.

REM Create a registry key and set a DWORD value
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WireGuard" /v LimitedOperatorUI /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f > nul

echo Registry key and DWORD value have been created successfully.

save as this script with extension “.bat”

to run just Right Click > Run As Administrator
