Join Timothy Pintello for an in-depth discussion in this video How to configure user account controls, part of Creating and Managing Group Policy for Windows Server 2012.
- User Account Controls, or UAC,…is something Microsoft has added…to Windows operating systems in order to prevent…regular users from performing administrative tasks…and therefore causing accidental harm to their systems.…It does this by limiting access to administrative tasks…even if a user has access rights to the task…they're trying to perform.…Anytime a user attempts to perform an administrative task,…the User Account Controls ask the user for authorization.…If the user is not already logged on as an administrator,…authorization comes in the form of an admin account…and a valid password.…
Until the User Account Controls receives…a valid administrative account and password,…it will not perform the task the user's attempting to do.…There are two ways you can make changes…to the User Account Controls.…The easiest and most common way to do it…is come down to the Control Panel…and then opening up the Security and then Action Center…and then over here, Change User Account Controls.…This will let you do very broad changes…
