How do I get right click run as admin to prompt me for credentials?

On most machines in my environment when I right click on a program and want to run it as admin it prompts me for and ID. On others this does not work. I would like to know where that setting is to change it to prompt me to enter credentials when I choose run as admin.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
