Why I see different UAC slide bar for admin and Standard user ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why I see different UAC slide bar for admin and Standard user ? When I log-in with Local built in admin user the UAC slider is set to: Notify only when program try to make changes to my computer (and do not dim my desktop). Don't notify when I make changes to windows settings. Snapshot of UAC slide bar for When logged in with Local admin to windows as below:

    Local Admin user UAC

    While for Standard user (logged in with Standard user and then accessed UAC console by entering local admin credentials) it is set to: Always notify me (and do not dim my desktop) - Programs try to install or make changes to my computer. I make changes to windows settings. Snapshot of UAC slide bar when logged in to windows with Standard domain user and accessed UAC console by running local admin credentials as prompted by UAC:

    Standard user UAC

    Can someone suggest whether the UAC slide bar setting should be same for all users (machine wide) ?
