  1. Allow to make changes to device when not an admin user


    Hello, I'm using a Windows 11 laptop and need guidance on how to grant elevation privileges to a non-admin account. Specifically, I want this user account to have the ability to perform certain tasks typically reserved for admin accounts, without granting it full admin rights. Could you please provide detailed steps or recommendations on how to configure these elevated privileges securely? When installing applications, i want a standard user to be allowed to make changes on the device the pop up screen.Thank you

    :)

  2. Standard user allow to change time

    Hello,

    I suggest you to change the account type from Standard to Administrator and check if it works.

    Here are the steps:

    Login to your Admin account.

    In search type User Account and hit enter.

    Click on Manage another account.

    Select your Standard user account and click on change the account type.

    From this page select Administrator and click on Change account type.

    After doing this switch user from Admin account to Standard user account and try to change the date and time.

    Hope this works.

      Windows + X,

    • In the Control Panel search box, type
      Bluetooth, and then click Change Bluetooth settings.

      Options tab and do any of the following:

    • To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, select the check box for

    Allow to make changes to device when not an admin user

    User Account Control: Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?

    Hi Josh,

    User Account Control helps prevent malware from damaging a computer. It also allows all users to log on to their computers using a standard user account. To isolate your issue, we'd like to know the following:

    • Have you tried booting up your computer in Safe Mode?
    • Do you have an antivirus application installed?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you change your User Account Control Settings in Control Panel to modify the Settings. Kindly follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel and click User Accounts icon.
    • Click Change User Account Control settings.
    • This will open the C:\Windows\System32\UserAccountControlSettings.exe file.
    • If prompted by User Account Control, click Yes.
    • Move the slider up or down to the setting for how you want to be notified by User Account Control, and click OK.
    • If prompted by UAC, click Yes.
    • When finished, you can close User Accounts.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
