Therefore there's some commands that I will not be allowed to run on this system because they require administrative level privileges to the system. And there's a key difference between running commands in the command prompt window, versus running commands over here say in Control Panel. In Control Panel if I tried to launch a task that requires administrative level access to the system that I don't currently have I'm given the option to authenticate as an administrative user.Which then allows me to perform those tasks. This is not the case in the command prompt window. If I tried to run a command here that requires administrative level access to the system it just won't work. I won't be prompted to elevate privileges. So how do you get around this? Well you need to run the command prompt process itself with administrator level privileges. Let's go ahead and close this window. If we come down here to our Windows icon again notice that there's an option here to launch command prompt with administrative level privileges. It says command prompt admin. I'll click on it.Now notice that I'm elevating privileges for the command prompt process itself. And because I'm logged in as a standard user, I have to authenticate first as an administrative user. I'll go ahead and do that. Now notice that there's a change up here in the title bar of the command prompt window. It's says administrator command prompt. That's one way to elevate privileges at the command prompt. So if I come down here, click on all apps, and then scroll down to Windows system and locate the command prompt I can right click on it and click run as administrator. And again we are elevating the privileges of the command prompt process itself so we have to authenticate as an administrative user to do so. And when we do we are again getting an administrative level command prompt window. When I do this then all of the commands that I run within this window will run with administrator level privileges. So with this in mind let's talk about how to manage user account control itself. Because you're not stuck with the default configuration. Let's launch Control Panel again go in to system and security and then under security and maintenance select change user account control settings. Now once again we are performing an administrative level task in Control Panel logged in as a standard user so I first have to authenticate as an administrative user before I can do anything. User Account Control Settings 10:02-12:16 Now back in the old days with user account control on Windows Vista, basically we had options to either turn UAC on or turn it off. We couldn't do a whole lot else. However with Windows 7 and laterwe have different levels that we can configure for UAC. The first option and the most secure option is always notify. Notice over here that we can use this slider to change the way UAC works. At the top we have the most secure settings, which is the default, and at the bottom we have the least secure settings which is probably not a good idea to use. If we select a particular

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
