How to deactivate UAC on windows

To deactivate User Account Control (UAC) on Windows, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the Control Panel. You can do this by pressing the Windows key, typing "Control Panel," and selecting it from the search results.

  2. In the Control Panel, locate and click on "User Accounts."

  3. Within the User Accounts window, click on "Change User Account Control settings."

  4. A new window titled "User Account Control Settings" will appear. You will see a slider with different levels of UAC settings.

  1. By default, the slider is set to the second highest level, "Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer." Drag the slider down to the lowest level, "Never notify," to completely disable UAC.

  2. Once you've moved the slider to the "Never notify" position, click on the "OK" button to save the changes.

  3. Windows will prompt you to restart your computer for the changes to take effect. Save any unsaved work and restart your computer.

After following these steps, UAC will be deactivated on your Windows system. Keep in mind that disabling UAC can reduce the security of your computer, as it helps protect against unauthorized changes to system settings and the installation of malicious software. Therefore, it's generally recommended to keep UAC enabled unless you have a specific reason for disabling it.
