This is a new copy of Windows 7. I would like the ability to save files to c:\ and c:\windows. I am logged with a user who belongs to the domain Admin group. I think I have turned off UAC ( I moved the slider to the bottom) and I have unchecked the Enable Protected mode in IE8.
I know I can open notepad as Administrator and then save it. But I would like to give that right/permission to the domain admin group.
thanks,
pat
