Vista Tip 6: No Elevation Prompt for Standard Users

Vista Tip 6: No Elevation Prompt for Standard Users
February 6, 2008 Jens

Talking about administrator rights and elevation prompts: If you are a standard user, it can be annoying to get the UAP User Account Protection) prompt every time a program likes to start with administrator rights.

  • The screen doesn’t get shaded anymore
  • The elevation prompt doesn’t pop up

The following steps are necessary:

  • Open Local Security Policy (secpol.msc)
  • Under Security Settings -> Security Options open the entry User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users
  • Change the value from Prompt for credentials to Automatically deny elevation requests

Of course, those programs cannot be started anymore for standard users šŸ˜‰
