Windows system popups not displayed in Looking Glass output

For most things, Looking Glass is properly displaying exactly what would be rendered to a monitor. However, for system popups like the “Give app permission to modify your computer” message, it is displaying correctly on an attached monitor, but not in the Looking Glass output.

Currently working around this by attaching passed through GPU to a monitor, but this is not ideal. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: you can work around this by turning down the UAC security level

What gnif said.

But it might be desired for security.
If you pass the keyboard through, you can press left on the board and hit enter…

I am a Linux fan, but some parts of Windows security is actually almost good (UAC is like Sudo, but easier on end users, so overall better than not being there…)

Thanks guys! I did not see that in the doc.
