The only thing I found close to what you are asking is this:

User Account Control (UAC) - Change Prompt Behavior for Standard Users

But unfortunately that is not going to help you. I could not find a way to do it when searching, but I feel group policy might have a setting on this. Most options I see only deal with the way the prompt is presented, and not about modifying the prompt.
