Windows 7: Cmd and Computer Management does not show UAC warning, but runs as Adm

Cmd and Computer Management does not show UAC warning, but runs as Adm

When I open Cmd, it opens directly as C:\Windows\System32 without a UAC warning.
Same as Computer Management.
Something wrong or is it ok?

Hello IMAyNeed,

Do you have UAC turned on to the top level?

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

The default level will not notify you if it's only you making changes to Windows settings.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

It is on the default level.
Just I wanted to put an elevated command shortcut to the desktop.
I wanted to run cmd as admin by properties-compability-run as admin-, but it was greyed out.
I clicked on it and it directly opened as c:\windows\system32. (I thought it would be running from c:\users)
So I said to myself is my security working correctly or not.
Thanks for the reply.

Ah, I see. That's a completely different issue.

Starting at step 4 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below will help show you how to set that shortcut to always "Run as administrator". It uses a different method than through the Compatibility tab.

The thing is it is already starting with c:\windows\system32 without that.
Doesn't that mean that it is already running as administrator?
And if not, can I just select right click-properties-advanced-run as administrator from the shortcut I already have on desktop (I just typed cmd at start button and when it came up, I right clicked and chose send to desktop)?

Not necessarily. As a test, type Diskpart in the command prompt and press enter. If you get a "Access Denied" message, or a UAC prompt, then the command prompt is not elevated.



Try what was posted above to see if you get a UAC prompt when you open it afterwards.

I got an UAC warning, after I allowed it started, so I will make it elevated.
Thanks.
