    The default setting in "display alerts" on multi-user systems is to show the alert on the Administrator account. From what I read an alert will also show on the screen of the currently logged in user with this setting even if they are not an administrator. Is this correct?

    Can I change the default setting "Administrator" to "%username%" in order to insure that the currently logged in user will be shown an alert?

    Are you talking about something like a terminal server environment where everyone has user rights except for the administrator that occasionally logs in, or a situation where there are multiple admins all logged in concurrently? If it is a TS-like environment, the alerts requiring intervention will only be displayed to the first user logged in with admin rights, and all the other people with less than admin rights don't really count. A multi-admin workstation functions in the same way minus the user accounts that aren't there.

    Setting the display alerts affinity only means that the account you specify takes priority over all other logged in admin accounts. If the account you specify isn't logged in then you are back to the account that has been logged in the longest taking priority.
