Dual Monitor / Extended Desktop without disabling UAC

Respuestas

  • For anyone reading this who's experiencing similar trouble:

    Window+x brings up the Windows Mobility Center, which can be used to quickly change display settings.  It also seems to remember display preferences.

    Window+p is even faster.

    I never found a way to prevent UAC from redirecting or forcing it to restore my active display, however.

  • Hi,


    We may try the following steps.


    1. Click Start, type in “Local Security Policy” and press Enter.

    2. Navigate to Local Policies\Security Options\

    3. Double click “User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation” and disable it.


    Please understand that this item controls whether the elevation request prompt is displayed on the interactive user's desktop or the secure desktop. It will not affect UAC settings.

  • Thanks, Kim!  Will this decrease my security?

  • Hi,


    If we disable this item, all elevation requests go to the interactive user’s desktop.


    Generally, it will not reduce the security level.

  • Thanks for your help, but these settings didn't affect the display behavior I'm hoping to address.

    UAC and Secure Desktop still reroute my dual-screen display to the built-in monitor, even with "switch to secure desktop when prompting for elevation" disabled.

    Thanks again.  I may look to automate the steps involved in resetting my display using an NVidia profile or script when I have more time to revisit this.

    It's a real bummer to spend so much time messing around with display settings, day in and day out...
