    Commenting my own idea to throw an alternative. If it is too complex to choose system or user context for each action, then maybe we could at least separate the installation in 2 different sections as follow:

    -Install (System) > each action in this section is performed under System context
    -Install (User) > each action in this section is performed under User context

    This allows for a bonus feature: to be able to install an application as part of a OSD task sequence by running only the System section. The User section would run only when the user first uses the application under his account (or would force-install if it's a mandatory installation).

    I completely agree!!! Coming from 10 years of Zenworks Configuration Management this is something that I always took for "granted". Now we are implementing Windows 10 with SCCM CB and this is one of the HUGE omission of the product.

    There should be an option to control the "launch" of an application. The idea behind that is that the user can find everything he needs in the Software Center and install, uninstall or open from the same area. (Not to hijack this thread but this also points to an obvious missing action that should be available to end-users from within Software Center: verify, repair or reinstall application)

    Currently, the user has to rely on other means to access the application and it's a lot harder to track where they are as programs do tend to set their shortcut to a different areas: start menu, tiles, desktop, quick launch, etc.... In addition the user can intentionally or not remove these and most of them will now know how to get it back causing unnecessary call to the Service Desk.
