abylon UAC-GRABBER Current Version: 2023.2

Comfort gain and constant security when calling programs with individual user account control (Product group: Apps & Tools)

To increase security against malware, Microsoft has introduced User Account Control in Windows Vista and later. The user (including the administrator) must confirm a security dialog when starting the program. This is intended to prevent the unwanted execution of programs with administrative rights and thus guarantee system integrity. However, the confirmation prompt is also displayed if you deliberately call a known program via a desktop icon or the start menu. The software abylon UAC-GRABBER allows you to start the program without further inquiry if the Windows security concept is still activated. The programs can be called by means of special desktop icons or starting from Windows 8 and 10 over the tray icon with alternative start menu. For quick access, frequently used programs can be placed in the Favorites folder. The internal autostart folder allows programs to be started automatically with admin rights when the system is booted or when logging in.

Dear Sir or Madam,
Although I haven't fully explored it, I so far think your program is very useful.
However, I'm assuming this program won't help me to avoid UAC prompts when launching programs from the command line, right?
I would really love that feature!

Avatar of abylonsoft support #456


Hi Robert,
why you want to launch a program per command line?

The easiest way should be to place the corresponding program in the autostart area of our abylon UAC-GRABBER.

If you still want to call by command line, this should be done as follows:


As an example:
C:\Program Files\abylonsoft\UAC Grabber\UACGrabberX64.EXE "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Computer Management.lnk" /TRYEXECUTEASADMIN

A hint: Simply create a corresponding link on the desktop and look in the properties of the link under "target".

Hi, In you Features you say Runs on Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1
You hint in one of your responses that "Otherwise, the Start-menu is only back in Windows 10 and not everyone has updated."
Does it run on WIN10 32 & 64 bit?

Avatar of abylonsoft support #412


The software abylon UAC-GRABBER also works under Windows 10 32 and 64 Bit. The "alternative" start menu is offered via our tray icon and is of course available under all supported operating systems.

I've updated the information.

First off, the program works. That’s good.
But I don’t like the user interface: I don’t need a second Start menu; one is enough.
For example software like Elevated Shortcut is in my opinion much better. It gives UAC permission to shortcuts in the existing Start menu.

Avatar of abylonsoft support #177


Thanks for the suggestion. We will consider if and how this can be implemented.
Otherwise, the Start-menu is only back in Windows 10 and not everyone has updated.

This program caused my Win 8.1 laptop to frequently crash. It’s incredibly slow to load from a full boot. Like other reviewer, the program does work. It’s very poorly documented, as in, there is no documentation to be found. Very poor user Interface. Is like having an additional start menu. I only need one and this program doesn’t integrate with it.

Avatar of abylonsoft support #176


That with the crashes we could not understand. About detailed information, we would be pleased.
A brief documentation can be found on our support page!
In Windows 8, Microsoft offers no Start menu. Therefore, it can be useful. Otherwise, we are grateful for suggestions.
