Record Or Screenshot UAC Prompts

UAC prompts are on a virtual desktop (or something like that), the usual Alt+PrintScreen or recording the screen using screen recorders doesn't work.

This method using the group policy editor should do the job:
1. Run gpedit.msc

2. Under Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\SecurityOptions

3. Change “User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation” to disabled.

4. Now UAC prompts will look like this:

Note: Undo this change after the screenshot or Screen recording, because it makes the system less secure!
