Disable User Access Control in Windows® 7
What is the role of User Access Control(UAC) in Windows 7 ? How can you disable it?
One of the most basic element and direct benefit of UAC's technology is simply making Windows more standard-user friendly. Windows 7 UAC has option to set level of alerts and notification hence virtually no setting to turn off or disable UAC in Windows 7. The user Access Control (UAC) can help you to prevent unauthorized changes to your computer, which works by prompting you for permission when a task requires administrative rights, such as installing software or changing settings that affect other users. The UAC is much improved in Windows 7. Number of clicks is drastically reduced in Windows 7. The main goal of the UAC is to provide user the control over what changes can happen to the system and not to annoy users with more number of prompts.
The tips to disable UAC in Windows 7 are:
- Disable UAC Control panel
- Disable UAC with Registry editor
- Disable UAC on Windows 7
Disable UAC Control panel
To disable the User Access Control in Windows 7, there are several methods to access the user access control settings page. Through the 'Control panel' you can access it by clicking on 'User access control settings' link. Then slide the slider bar to the lowest value; with description showing 'Never notifies me'. Click the 'OK' button to make the change effective. Now restart the computer to turn off user access control.
Disable UAC with registry editor
First run the 'Registry editor' (RegEdit) and navigate the mouse pointer to the registry key. Then locate the value 'EnableLUA'. You have to set the value of EnableLUA to 0. To suppress UAC consent prompt dialog, locate the value 'ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin' and set the value of ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin to 0. After all these process exit from registry editor and restart the computer to turn off user access control.
The Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with user access control settings, and in fact you do not have to completely disable UAC if you do not want to.
