    Small UAC problem.


    Afternoon all.. particularly try 3 ?.

    A little while ago I set up a NewAdminPrimary account the password for which has been opening downloads fine....BUT now I am getting the message that the password has expired and must be changed !.. If I remember rightly it was a temporary password which I selected at the time.

    Now I get a drop box asking for a new password but whatever I enter I get the message ' the passwords you entered did not match '.

    I would again value some guidance to help me firstly to ' learn HOW TO once again '
    and secondly reset the password perhaps more permanently this time so that business can be resumed !.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Alan.

    :)

    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

  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.
