Most of the tools available in the Mageia Control Center are displayed in the left side of the window (see the screenshot above) and for each tool, a drop down list on the right side gives the choice between:

  • Default: The launch mode depends on the chosen security level. See in the same MCC tab, the tool "Configure system security, permissions and audit".

  • User password: The user password is asked before the tool launching.

  • Administrator password: The root password is asked before the tool launching

  • No password: The tool is launched without asking any password.
