My Dev Environment is SharePoint 2010 on WIN 7. I have 2 users
1) Built in Administrator- Member of FARM Administrator
2) Pathik01\Pathik – Also member of FARM Administrator
Now when I Sign-in with my account and use Manage Web Application link, on the Top Ribbon none of Button is enabled. I can not create Web APP nor Extend it. When I select web application from list, some button are enabled but not all. Also I can see role as Contributor
This does not happen When I sign-in with Built-in\Administrator account.
To solve this issue I changed the User Account Control setting —
Open User Account Control Setting from Control Panel \System and Security \Change User Account Control settings
and set the Slider bar to "Never Notify " as shown in below picture
