Windows 7: User & Built-in Admin Merge

User & Built-in Admin Merge

I like the built-in admin environment, especially not having to deal with all the 'blu-yelllow' shielded programs or other programs and sys. functions that always prompt. Never understood why my normal login user account, which btw is also 'allegedly' an admin account, constantly fires up these permission prompts. So, rather than reconstruct my original user environment, is there a simple way to either convert the account into the built-in admin, or port that environment into the built-in admin account?

(Just had a horrible thought. Is UAC disabled in the built-in admin. environment? If so, then the above request can be 86'd.)

Hello MourningStar,

You could use the tutorial below to elevate the priviledge level of your normal administrator account to be like the built-in Administrator account. You'll use the "no prompting by UAC" option. I don't remember if you will still have the UAC icons on programs that require elevation afterwards though.

Hope this helps.

Brink, your tutorials are amazing! :-)

I've always had mine set to elevate without prompting through group policy.

It would have been good if the UAC had a whitelist but I guess that would kind of reduce the overall security of UAC.
