Ed Bott: How Microsoft Should Fix Vista UAC

Postby TeMerc » Thu May 29, 2008 4:56 pm

I was all prepared to lay out my modest proposal for how Microsoft should tweak UAC in Windows 7. And then I said, “Hey, wait a minute! I already did this.”

And sure enough, with a little help from Google I was able to reread “How Microsoft can save User Account Control.” which I wrote way back in May 2006, while Vista was still in beta. In that post, I offered four “suggestions that might ease the pain” of UAC. Two years later, I think those recommendations are still valid, so I’m reprinting them here, with a little updated commentary on each one.
