UAC - GPO settings vs Local PC UAC settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    What will happen to the UAC settings of a PC if I configure the UAC settings on a Group Policy linked to that pc? Like what if the local UAC settings on the PC is somehow the opposite settings of the UAC in the GPO?

    Thank you for the answers! :)

  • Hi nielX.a,

    There are 10 Group Policy settings that can be configured for User Account Control (UAC). The table lists the default for each of the policy settings, and the following sections explain the different UAC policy settings and provide recommendations. These policy settings are located in Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options in the Local Security Policy snap-in. For more information about each of the Group Policy settings, see the Group Policy description.

    For more information, please refer to the link:

    Best Regards,
