Windows 7: User Account Control question

06 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
User Account Control question

Is it possible to turn off UAC for a single program? Or is the particular setting it is set at apply to all programs? I ask because I have one program that it asks me every time I open the program. I'd like to turn off the notification for that program but leave the rest of them as they are. Is that possible?

Hello Cheezit,

Currently UAC is applied to all programs. However, you can create a elevated shortcut for a single program to have it with UAC on without a UAC prompt as a workaround.

Hope this helps,

I asked the very same question a couple of days ago and found the tutorial Shawn mentioned above. The thread can be found here, if your program has an argument (step 6 in the tutorial) reading what I discovered might be helpful.

I have installed Warhammer Online and it works fine but whenever I go to start it up I get this annoying window that says "Do you want the following program to make changes to this computer". How can I turn this so it doesn't do this everytime I start up Warhammer?
