Good Morning,

I am attempting to turn off UAC for ALL users who log on via RDP to one of my servers (Windows Server 2012 R2 Std).

My domain and forest functional levels is Windows Server 2012 R2.

Below is a screenshot of what I have in GPO.
I have 2 standard users who connect to this server, and if I log in as them and go to the UAC settings I still see that it is on (screenshot below).
Yet when I login (as a domain admin) to the server via RDP, my UAC setting is off (screenshot below).
Please advise how I can turn UAC off completely for ALL users who log on to this server.

Kind Regards,
