I’ve previously written about a way to enable or disable UAC from the command line.
You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted.
If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely.
Open up the Start screen, search for UAC, and you should see an option for User Account Control settings.
If you don’t, you’ll need to change to search through your Settings first, but then you should see it.
If you are in Windows 10, you need to search the Start Menu instead, but it’s the same thing.
And then you can drag the slider all the way to the bottom, the same as for the other versions of Windows. Open up Control Panel, and type in “UAC” into the search box.You’ll see a link for “Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off”: On the next screen you should uncheck the box for “Use User Account Control (UAC)”, and then click on the OK button.You’ll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.easy depends on how Windows Update is configured to download and apply updates.When you first turned on your new computer, or were finishing your Windows operating system install, you told Windows Update how you wanted it to act - a little more automatic or a little more manual.If your original decision isn't working out, or you need to change how it works to avoid repeating an auto-update issue, like what happens on some Patch Tuesdays, you can simply adjust how Windows receives and installs updates.
