    Possible to change UAC without disabling it all together?


    Simply put: I'm using a third party tile creator (Oblytile) to make tiles for the Start screen. It works fine, but I still get a User Account Control notification when I'm trying to launch the apps even though the app it's technically asking about is Microsoft Windows Based Script Host!

    Is there anyway I can stop the notification for this program without disabling the thing all together?

    Cheers

    Hello McChair, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut that will run the program elevated without an UAC prompt.

    Hope this helps,

    Ah, thanks for the answer.

    I actually ended up using another Tile creator which turned out not to have this issue. But I'll keep this in mind for future reference.
