2 Ways to Turn Off / On or Disable UAC in Windows 10

Within the different security measures implemented in Windows 10, we have the UAC (User Account Control) which is intended to prevent applications or programs from making unauthorized changes in the system.

So, if we have different users, it is necessary to limit the permissions of each one.

This utility is practical because when an application tries to make some change, a message will be displayed requesting our authorization for this change, which is an essential level of security for us, allowing us to choose what modification to allow.

There are several users who don’t want to continue receiving this type of notification and choose to disable Windows 10 UAC and today we will teach how to do this process using two simple methods.

Method #1: Disable UAC using Registry Editor

To open the Registry Editor in Windows 10 press the keys Winkey + R and type the command regedit then press Enter

Go to the following path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System

In the right part, look for EnableLUA and double click on it

There, change the Value data from 1 to zero 0. Press OK to save the changes and restart your PC.

As easy as that you can disable UAC in Windows 10 using the Registry Editor

Method #2: Disable UAC using Control Panel

First, open the Control Panel using one of the following methods here.

There click on User Accounts and then click on Change User Account Control Settings

In the windows that open, swipe the box to the lower option called Never notify. Click OK to save the changes.

In this way, we have disabled the UAC or Windows 10 User Account Control through the Control Panel and Registry Editor.

We can use any of the methods to perform the process of disabling UAC in our computer and thus avoid this message every time you make some change in your PC.

Remember that this User Control is handy when we want to limit the actions of the different user accounts.

When you have activated UAC, you receive notifications that a user is trying to take some action.
