UAC – or User Access Control – is a feature of Windows to help protect against Malware. It can be disabled, but this is a potential security risk, and you should carefully consider all the implications of this before proceeding.
- Windows 10 Type UAC in the search box and press Enter – Windows 7 Click Start and type UAC in the search box and press Enter.
- Slide the slider all the way down and then click OK to save the changes.
- To enable UAC simply slide the slider back up to the default setting “Notify me only when apps try to make changes” and click on OK.
