    Hello,
    I disabled UAC and when I try to open Edge, Calculator, etc I get a window message that says that I cant open it with UAC disabled, I find it something very annoying that makes me think about going back to Windows 7, is there any around this?
    In Windows 7 for example, I was able to open the calculator with UAC disabled.
    Thanks!
    I have a fix that will allow you to still keep UAC enabled, provide no prompting for a user, while still being able to run all Metro apps - calculator, Edge, weather, news, calendar, etc
    Either through Group Policy or Local Security Policy
    Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\SecuritySettings\Local Policies\Security Options

    • User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account = Enabled


    • User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode = Prompt for Credentials

    Next, make some registry changes ....
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    Make the following changes

    • ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin 0x00000003 becomes 0x00000000


    • ConsentPromptBehaviorUser 0x00000003 becomes 0x00000000


    • EnableLUA 0x00000001 stays at 0x00000001

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\UIPI

    • Change (Default) from the (value not set) to 0x00000001(1)

    Reboot your Windows 10 machine and enjoy all the metro apps that require UAC/escalation without the nags

    I believe the program I am trying to use in Windows 10 is using the SendKeys system call and doesn't work with UAC enabled but with UAC disabled it works fine - however, like you say, the Metro apps stop working.
    I've tried the above settings and the Metro apps still appear to work but my program still doesn't work. Any suggestions on your above settings?
    Thanks
