This PC Desktop Icon RightClick Manage does not give UAC prompt RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I right click on the "This PC" desktop icon and select "Manage" I do not get a UAC prompt from a non administrator account. This used to work and I can't think of anything that could have changed this.

    sfc /scannow

    dism /online /cleaup-image /scanhealth

    All return with no issues

    Windows 10/64 (B15063.296-V1703)

    How can I fix this problem any ideas please?

  • Hi, 

    Did you turn User Account Control (UAC) on? Have a check.

  • UAC works correctly everywhere else and the slider on my system is right at the top - which is the default

  • Hi ,

    I have tested on my Windows 10 version 1703 (OS Build 15063.296). You are right. This behavior has changed in Windows 10 version 1703 (OS Build 15063.296). If you have any concern about it, you could use the built-in Feedback Hub to submit on your side. We will also submit it to system product team via our internal feedback tool.

    Best regards

  • Hello Rick,

    Any news on this issue through your internal feedback hub? The issue is still present in insider build 16278 and there are only very few posts about it in community feedback hub. 

    The issue can also be seen when in System properties ans chosing Device Manager, there again, UAC won't prompt you and it opens the device manager with your currently logged on user's permissions.

    Thank you.

  • This doesn't sound like the sort of thing that would break, it seems it was done intentionally.  Why would Microsoft choose to make this change?

  • It's still the same in V1709 B16299.0
