    Make Windows ask for admin password when trying to make changes


    Hi,
    We have guests laptops at school for everyone but they keep making changes on the computer.
    How can i make Windows to ask for admin password when trying to make changes in the computer and when trying to run the installer?
    Google does not give me right results.

    I don't think you can stop users from making all changes. However if the account that they are using is a standard user account then it will ask for a administrator password when ever the UAC prompt comes up for system changes and installs.

    Maybe you could take a drive image of the computer when it is in the state that you want it, then restore it when needed

    Maybe this tutorial can help:

    If you want to really lock it down, think about setting up a Family Safety for a child(a misnomer actually, because it is also good protection from malware for daily use(if you are not the type to play around with settings everyday)): Family Settings - Manage for Child in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
