It should be something like control APPLET.cpl, but I am not able to find the applet name. Does anybody know?

C:\Windows\System32\UserAccountControlSettings.exe

I assume you are looking for the command to open the User Account Control applet from the Windows Run command. To do this, in the Run box type useraccountcontrolsettings then click OK to get directly to the User Account Control Settings window.

You can also enable and disable via CMD:

Disable:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD  HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v  EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Enable:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD  HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v  EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

  • Sorry to necro this. But this regkey should not be tampered with. You see that it is a subkey of the path policies, which means there are a policy-settings to change this. (Local Policies\Security Options\User Account Control) – Tom Aug 17 '17 at 9:07

To start from command line:

control nusrmgr.cpl

    This opens up the User Account page, not the user account controls (UAC). – James Mertz Apr 4 '13 at 22:48
  • This was helpful for opening another control panel. – Kravimir Sep 4 '19 at 20:26
