UAC - User Account Control tutorials

  • Using Administrator user account to do day-to-day task, poses security risk.

  • UAC - User Account Control was introduced in Windows Vista and enhanced in Windows 7.

  • UAC is security feature that provides way to each user to raise their status from standard user to an administrators account without logging off, switching user or using Run as.

  • When user runs computers with Standard User accounts with least privilege, the environment will remain more secure and reliable.

  • Windows 8 reduces the number of application and task that require elevation and it help to reduces elevation prompts.

  • When you need to make changes to your computer that requires administrator level privilege, UAC prompts the user to enter valid Administrator Account credential.

 

The elevation prompt has two variations

  • Consent Prompt - If you are an Administrator, it request for approval to continue from the user. Click Yes to continue,

  • Credential Prompt - If you are standard user, when they attempt to perform administrative task, someone with an Administrator account on the computer will have to enter his or her password for you to continue

 

Exercise User Account Control Setting

  • Logon using Administrator rights,

  • Select Control Panel, if set to View by Category mode, Click on System and Security, under Action Center, Click on Change User Account Control Setting link. If it is set View by Large Icon, Click Action Center, Click on Change User Account Control Setting link.

  • This will open User Account Control Settings. You can set notification to four levels.

 

1) Never Notify -

  • This is the least secure setting. It won’t notify before any changes made to your computer.

  • When you’re logged on as administrator, program can make changes to your computer without you knowing about it.

  • When you’re logged on as standard user, any changes that require administrator permission will automatically be denied.

 

2) Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop)

  • This setting is the same as "Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer," but you're not notified on the secure desktop.

  • For standard user, you'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer that requires administrator permissions.

  • You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.

  • You'll be notified if a program outside of Windows tries to make changes to a Windows setting.

 

Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer

  • This is default setting.

  • You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer that requires administrator permissions.

  • You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.

  • You'll be notified if a program outside of Windows tries to make changes to a Windows setting.

 

Always notify

  • This is the most secure setting.

  • You'll be notified before programs make changes to your computer or to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.

  • When you're notified, your desktop will be dimmed, and you must either approve or deny the request in the UAC dialog box before you can do anything else on your computer.

  • The dimming of your desktop is referred to as the secure desktop because other programs can't run while it's dimmed.

  • Let us see after we adjust the notification to Always Notify.

  • We now logon using Administrators permission.

  • Now right click on Computer and then select Manage option.

  • Windows immediately display User Account Control Prompt and ask you to either approve or deny request, even when we are logged on using Administrator account.

  • Click No on Computer Management Snap in Launcher.

  • Now again select Control Panel, Click on Action Center and click on Change User Account Control Settings.

  • Click Yes on UAC prompt.

  • Now Drag the bar from Always Notify to Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (Default)

  • Click Ok and Click Yes in UAC dialog box.

  • Now again Right Click on Computer and Select Manage.

  • This time computer has not shown UAC notification.
