    So, how should I do ensure that also this UAC window use classic Login?


    Hello Balubeto,

    I'm sorry, but this tutorial is only for the Windows sign in screen and doesn't affect UAC.

    For UAC, you could use step 5 in Option One below, or select "Prompt for credentials" in Option Two below.
