    Anniversary update and User Account Control (UAC) window

    I have update my windows 10 with anniversary update.
    But when a sofware needs to be runned as administator and UAC window appears, it is at second level and so it is hidden.
    I have to press "alt tab" to view it at firt level.
    Is there a way to fix?

    windows 10

    I am an IT administrator and this new behavior is making my life miserable. On ten different computers, I have found myself waiting for an installation to complete, while the UAC window "hides" behind everything else. You don't see an icon in the taskbar, you don't see a window when you cycle through alt-tab, but when you let go of ALT and TAB - bingo! - the UAC windows appears.

    I do not want this feature.

    Amen to THAT. I rolled back Anniversary because of this and other irritations. I've already commented about this on Insider. I'm glad that there is some place to post for MS to see when a feature isn't up to par, and there have been a lot of these issues lately.
