Tweaking User Account Control
Table 18-1: User Account Control Settings
SETTING NAME
FUNCTION
User Account Control: Admin
Approval Mode for the built-in
Administrator account.
This determines whether an Administrator who
is logged on and working will get UAC prompts.
This account is usually disabled, so this setting is
useless.
User Account Control: Allows
UIAccess applications to
prompt for elevation without
using the secure desktop.
This setting allows remote control
applications such as Remote Assistance to receive UAC
prompts without switching to the secure desktop.
User Account Control: Behavior
of the elevation prompts for
Administrators in Admin
Approval Mode.
This determines which type of prompt an
Administrator receives. You can choose between
prompting for consent, prompting for the admin
password, or disabling the prompting altogether.
User Account Control: Behavior
of the elevation prompt for
standard users.
This determines the type of UAC prompt standard
users receive. By default, this is set to prompt
for credentials, but it can be set to disable
prompting.
User Account Control: Detects
application installations and
prompts for elevation.
This allows you to disable UAC prompts for
installing new applications.
User Account Control: Only
elevates executables that are
signed and validated.
This setting is disabled by default, but if you want
a super-secure system that can run only
applications that are signed with a certificate, you can
enable this.
User Account Control: Only
elevates UIAccess applications
that are installed in secure
locations.
This allows UAC to elevate only those applications
that are in secure locations such as your local
hard drive. An unsecured location may not be a
trusted network drive.
User Account Control: Runs
all administrators in Admin
Approval Mode.
Similar to the Admin Approval Mode for the
built-in Administrator account, this setting
applies to all accounts that are members of the
Administrator security group.
User Account Control: Switches
to the secure desktop when
prompting for elevation.
Enables you to specify whether you want to
switch to a secure desktop—one where other
applications and scripts do not have access—to
protect the UAC prompts from being manipulated
by scripts and applications instead of end users.
User Account Control:
Virtualizes file and registry
write failures to per-user
locations.
Enables users running as standard users to run
applications that might previously have required
administrative rights. This redirects system
registry entries that are protected by admin
permissions to local user locations so the application
will still run.
