Step-by-step guide

When playing on Voobly, Age of Empires II is run as Administrator on newer operating systems, which is Windows 7 and above. If you notice, that your game settings, such as custom hot keys are gone, simply close Age of Empires II, then right click on the Age of Empires II shortcut and click Run as Administrator. To fix this this permanently:

  1. right click on your Age of Empires II shortcut
  2. click Properties
  3. switch to Tab Compatibility
  4. check Run this program as an administrator below Privilege level
  5. confirm with Apply and OK
