Command prompt is a powerful tool used to run programs and perform tasks on Windows computers. This feature is enabled by default, but some people might want to use it without having access to it. In this article, we will show how to disable access to command prompt for standard account.
To do this, open Control Panel and go to User Accounts. Click on Manage my account. You will see a list of your current accounts. Select the one you wish to modify and click Change settings. Go to Advanced tab and select Allow guests full control. Now, close the window and log out. Log back into your computer and try to launch cmd.exe again. If you are able to launch it, you have successfully disabled access to command prompt for your standard account.

The Command Prompt window allows administrators to run commands without having to log into Windows as an Administrator. However, it also gives standard account users full control over the computer. If you want to give users limited access to the Command Prompt window, use the Advanced Permission Dialog.
You can open the dialog box by typing cmd /u /advancedpermissions.txt into the Start menu Search bar. When prompted, enter your password and press Enter.
If you are logged in as an administrator, you will see a list of permissions that you can grant to standard accounts. Click Add User or Group to add a standard account. Then select Standard Account from the dropdown menu. Finally, type the name of the standard account you wish to limit access to the Command Prompt. Press OK.
When you close the dialog box, you will no longer be able to access the Command Prompt window unless you log into Windows as an administrator.
