Docker for Windows 10 error: //./pipe/docker_engine: access is denied

0 votes

I installed docker for windows on windows 10 operating system.
I’m able to run docker.exe commands in admin powershell environment, but I can’t do the same without any admin access

I have made the following changes in the docker configuration file:

{
    "group": "Power Users"
}

I’ve added the user to admin user group.

Is there any way to run docker commands without using run as administrator

You can do this by making the connection thru TCP. Open up powershell and try this command:

$env:DOCKER_HOST="tcp://0.0.0.0:2375"
docker ps
