    Hello Bryant,

    If you mean while signed in to the built-in elevated "Administrator" account, then no.

    You will have to be signed in to a non elevated account like your normal standard or administrator type accounts, and have UAC enabled.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Shawn, just for clarification what does UAC stand for?

    User Account Control (UAC)

    It's the Yes/No prompt you get whenever you try to "Run as administrator" (elevated).
