    How to make Win10 Pro act more like Enterprise when disabling UAC?


    Windows 7 Pro & Enterprise were very closely related, however, with Windows 10 Microsoft are clearly separating the two and suspect Home & Pro may merger at some point.

    Disabling UAC in Windows Pro used to run applications like Command Prompt as an elevated user automatically but this is no longer the case. Obviously I can create shortcuts and tick ''Run as administrator' but I'd ideally like that to be on the application itself. Now when I do 'WIN+R' > type: CMD it brings up a non elevated Command Prompt.

    Have Microsoft defaulted user permissions somewhere or is there something fundamentally different in the UAC mechanism. When I compare say CMD.exe on Enterprise & Pro the permissions are identical. Is there something deep in the registry?
    Any tricks would be appreciated.

    P.S. - Please don't turn this into a 'but you shouldn't disable UAC' discussion. Start another thread if it pains you to discuss the wherefores and whys.

    :)

  3. Problem with UAC in win 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    To disable UAC prompts, I suggest you to follow the steps provided below:

    • In the search bar, type Control Panel and press Enter.
    • Click on User Accounts and again click on User Accounts.
    • Click on Change User account control settings.
    • Provide password for the UAC prompt.
    • Drag the box from Always Notify to Never Notify and click on OK.
    • Provide password for the UAC prompt (if asked again).

    Important: Turning off UAC reduces the security of your computer and may expose you to increased risk from malicious software. We do not recommend leaving UAC disabled.

    How to make Win10 Pro act more like Enterprise when disabling UAC?

    Unable to disable UAC on WIn10

    I'm trying to temporarily disable UAC on WIn 10.

    I go to UAC and enter the admin password when prompted. I then slide the slider to the bottom, or even 2nd spot up and get a msg:

    "You must be logged on as an administrator to do this".

    I am in an account with admin privileges. The account or user name is not "Admin" or "Administrator" but I don't think that matters, does it? User names are just arbitrary names like "Bob".

    Thanks for some guidance.
