"Whether user is logged on or not" run in the background and I need it to allow user interaction

שימי רוזנברג 1 Reputation point

I have a task I need to run no matter what user is logged on, but when I do it - it runs in the background and I need the user to interact with it.

when I run it on command it works if I choose "only when the user is logged in", but not in the background.

in the screenshot there's a command to make sure Num Lock is active (so I'm open to other ways to do it) but I also have another one on a different computer that opens a software with admin privilegs on a regular user so I also need a way to do that anyway.

    You may try to check the "Run with highest privileges" box or change your user account like system or someone else.

    Meanwhile, if you are using a domain user, notice if your user can be authenticated.
