In this article, we will learn How to Disable User Account Control in Windows 11. The Windows UAC prevents any unwelcome changes to your system within a Windows environment. These changes may either be from other software downloads or from the users themselves. Although the feature isn’t as annoying as it used to be, in older versions of Windows, you may want to tweak or disable it entirely.
Here’s how to do it in Windows 11-
How to disable User Account Control in Windows 11
When you or an application tries to make a change to your Windows 11 system, the UAC screen will prompt you. If you know what you are doing, having to click through this prompt each time can be frustrating.
There are a few changes to the UAC, but it’s still largely the same. But if you’re not familiar with Windows 11, I recommend going through the user interface again before going out into the public as there could be some unpleasant surprises around every corner.
Press the Windows key on your keyboard and write: uac and then click “Change User Account Control settings” in the menu under “Best Match”
This will open the UAC configuration screen so you can adjust the slider for more or less user account control protection. Moving it up will only notify you when applications and changes are being made while moving down means to always allow these actions without any notification. This will not notify you when applications try to make changes.
But first, on your system, you can disable UAC by moving the slider all the way down. You’ll also be alerted to any changes an app might make or if you’re making any changes to Windows settings.
Once you make your decision, make sure to click the button To accept the change before it takes effect. You’ll then get a UAC window that appears to verify that you want to make the change. Click on Yes.
Once you restart your PC, you’ll see all the security notifications. If it bothers you too much, then why not disable the UAC for now and re-enable it later? You can always adjust Security settings to your liking after that.
