How to Disable User Account Control in Vista

Posted: August 21, 2009 in Vista

You can disable User Account Control across the board for all users of a given PC by

navigating to the User Controls section of the Control Panel (in Control Panel➪User

Accounts and Family Settings➪User Accounts) and selecting the option titled Change

security settings. This will load the Change Security Settings window. To disable User

Account Control, simply uncheck the option titled Use User

Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer and then click the OK button.

Note that you will have to reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

If you want to disable User Account Control for just a single user, you simply need to

select a single check box in the User Accounts Control Panel. The quickest way is to

open the Start menu and click the picture that’s associated with your user account.

Then, in the User Accounts window that appears, click Turn User Account Control on

or off. You’ll see the required check box in the next window.
