How to capture Window's User Access Control Prompts

Postby Andrew » Tue Aug 07, 2012 5:00 pm

A user recently was trying to capture the windows User Access Control Prompts. If you have Windows Vista or 7 you have have seen these dialogs. The entire screen dims and a dialog that looks like the following is displayed:

Windows_7_UAC.png


If you can't can't capture these, it may be that machine has gone into "Secure Desktop" mode while displaying the prompt. Microsoft has set it up such that screenshots of any kind are disabled when in "Secure Desktop". The following link shows you how to disable Secure Desktop to allow you to capture the screenshots.
