Has any one tried some thing in Windows for an Administrator account not making it able to login through the regular Welcome screen, but it should work only when an administrative privilege is required while been logged in to Windows as normal user?
I am just trying to get a work around for it to do like the supper user "root" in Linux. As I do have an option in Linux to enable/disable "root" account and only give a password when ever a privilege is needed. Just like that I want an Administrator account in Windows, which should not be able to login via the Welcome screen but I could use this account for some or all administrative tasks while being logged in as normal user...
I hope it makes some sense to Linux users.
The example of it is already in the Windows systems. Which is when we are logged in to Windows with a normal User account and try to perform a task, which requires an administrative privilege, Windows prompts with a Login dialog to login as an Administrator. But the problem is, I tried hard but, I couldn't manage to "set an Administrator not able to login on welcome screen but to be used when ever needed a privilege". I only have one option for any account in windows, that is to enable or disable the account which will be set for that account globally.
Means that if I enable an Administrator account it will be available to login with it on welcome screen and as well it will be available to login when a User account performs an administrative task.
And if I disable an Administrator account it will be disabled fully. I won't be able to login with it on Welcome screen (which is good in the desired case). but the bad as well as I also won't be able to use this account when ever a privilege is needed while logged in as normal User account.
I've tried reading a lot in policies and even tried different set of values and parameters in them. But I didn't get such a solution which I just needed.
