User Account Control (UAC) for Server 2008

Today a admin mentioned how annoying the “Run as Administrator” option is on Server 2008, well I agree so here’s how to turn it off:

Click Start

Type UAC:

UAC1

Click “Change User Account Control Settings” and change the sliding setting.  I chose Never notify:

UAC2

Click OK and Yes if prompted.

If for some reason this doesnt change UAC for all users of the server you either need to create a group policy to change:

“User Account Control:Run all administrators in Admin Approval”

or you can change it locally using Local Security Policy i.e.

Click Start, Run, type:

secpol.msc

UAC3

Go to:

UAC4

Find: “User Account Control:Run all administrators in Admin Approval” and choose Disabled.

UAC5

Done.
