How to disable User Account Control (UAC) in Windows 10

 User Account Control (UAC) is a security component that enables users to perform common tasks as non-administrators (called standard users in Windows Vista), and as administrators without having to switch users, log off, or use Run As. But sometimes it becomes a hassle to keep waiting for the prompt at times for an elevation of the user rights to be able to proceed ahead.

Some companies go ahead and manage these by disabling it. Doing this in Windows 7 was simple enough. Go to Run, or the Start Menu and start searching for “Change User Account Settings”. In Windows 8 as Windows 10 well, the idea is the same, which takes just 2 simple steps:

Type "UAC" or "Change User Account Control" in the search field in the start menu.
Click Change User Account Control settings in the search results.
Then do one of the following

1- To turn UAC off, drag the slider down to Never notify, and click OK.
2- To turn UAC on, drag the slider up to the desired level of security, and click OK.
You may be prompted to confirm your selection or enter an administrator password.
Reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

This is for those of you who disable UAC on their systems and have been getting annoyed that it doesn't disable UAC completely even though the slider is pulled all the way down and the user is Admin.

So, just open regedit from Run and locate this key.


In the right pane look for EnableLUA and modify its value to 0. Close regedit.

it is important to reiterate that disabling UAC introduces significant vulnerabilities to Windows. The Windows OS has made great strides recently in terms of security, and UAC is a large reason for its progress. Only users who are fully aware of the risks and willing to accept the consequences should consider disabling UAC
