With the Windows Vista operating system, Microsoft introduced a new security system. This was further developed under Windows 7 and Windows 8. 
To protect your computer against malicious software, all users (even an administrator) must confirm the UAC security dialog, when starting an application. The User Account Control permission (UAC) is a safety feature for the computer and should prevent unwanted running of programs with administrative rights. However, this confirmation dialog is also shown when a user starts trusted programs from their desktop-icon, or the Start-menu. The software abylon UAC GRABBER allows the program to start without user prompting. Here, the Windows security concept remains active. The programs can be called via the special desktop icons or since Windows 8 about an alternative Start Menu.

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!

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?

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.

thank you so much

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.

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.

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.
