    'Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?' and the only option I can...


    I have just bought a new laptop and am trying to install programs but they take me to a screen that asks 'Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?' and the only option it gives me to select is 'No', so I cannot install them. I have already looked at some answers regarding standard/administrator account access but none of them have solved this issue for me.

    :)

    'Allow a device to connect' is greyed out

    Hi,

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve the issue.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Run Hardware and Device troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your USB Port. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top
      right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.
    Step 2: I suggest you to check the Bluetooth Settings and check if it helps.


    • Open Control Panel by clicking the
      Windows + X,

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

    • In the Bluetooth Settings dialog box, click the
      Options tab and do any of the following:

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

    • To allow you to add Bluetooth enabled devices to your computer, select the check box for
      Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer.

    • To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device is trying to connect to your computer, select the check box for
      Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect.

    Keep us posted on this issue so that we can assist you better.

  3. E71 not remembering options set in the App Manager

    Hi,

    I am having the same problem. My phone always asks me for permission for the app to use the network to send/receive data. I have tried your suggestion of opening the app and still can't find anything in options to allow me to change this. Sorry if I'm being
    a bit stupid but could you list the steps you would take to do this.

    Cheers

    Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?

    Win 10 Pro. 1709. Logged in as admin. I don't want to shut off UAC completely but that message gets pretty annoying at times. Is the only way to solve this is to use Task Scheduler or a third party app? or is there a setting that I am not aware of that I can just manually white list an app so I do not get that message any more? I'm talking to you VLC Media Player, CrystalDiskInfo, FarStone Image Viewer, Agent Ransack and a whole host of others. It is also not inconceivable that I made a change at some point that is bringing up that annoying message. TIA.
