Mapped Network Drives Not Showing in Elevated Programs


This article covers methods to fix 'Mapped Network Drives Not Showing in Elevated Programs' issue for our customers.
When UAC is enabled, the system creates two logon sessions at user logon. Both logon sessions are linked to one another.
One session represents the user during an elevated session, and the other session where you run under least user rights.
When drive mappings are created, the system creates symbolic link objects (DosDevices) that associate the drive letters to the UNC paths.
These objects are specific for a logon session and are not shared between logon sessions.
When the UAC policy is configured to Prompt for credentials, a new logon session is created in addition to the existing two linked logon sessions.

To resolve this Windows issue:

1. In Local Group Policy Editor, locate the following Group Policy path:

Local Computer Policy\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

2. Configure the following policy to Prompt for consent: User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode


Note:
The EnableLinkedConnections registry entry forces the symbolic links to be written to both linked logon sessions that are created, when UAC is enabled.
