UAC prompt always minimized


Recommended Posts

I am running StartMenu8 on a Windows 8.1 Pro system, and I have the UAC ( User Account Control ) settings at the Windows default so I get a popup window asking for verification on certain actions. If I try to do something from StartMenu8, for example try to run the Windows System command prompt as an administrator using the right mouse button context menu, then the UAC popup is triggered. BUT, it is minimized and the system is 'locked' because this popup has to be satisfied before the system will proceed. The only bypass that I have found is to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to switch to the task manager, and then use that to switch to the UAC prompt which brings it to the foreground.


If I do a similar action outside StartMenu8, for example from a shortcut on the desktop all works as expected
