    Can't keep UAC disabled (never notify)


    It's easy to do Enable or Disable UAC prompt for Built-in Administrator in Windows | Windows 10 Tutorials (Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account = Enabled). It works for a few reboots. Then it's magically back to Disabled (and action center says "You must restart your computer to turn on User Account Control".

    What's the next step to force this thing to stay at "never notify"? (And yes, I have strong anti-virus protection and everything, I'm willing to take the risk this setting brings.)

    :)

  2. Problem with UAC in win 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    To disable UAC prompts, I suggest you to follow the steps provided below:

    • In the search bar, type Control Panel and press Enter.
    • Click on User Accounts and again click on User Accounts.
    • Click on Change User account control settings.
    • Provide password for the UAC prompt.
    • Drag the box from Always Notify to Never Notify and click on OK.
    • Provide password for the UAC prompt (if asked again).

    Important: Turning off UAC reduces the security of your computer and may expose you to increased risk from malicious software. We do not recommend leaving UAC disabled.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

  3. User Account Control - Notification in Windows 10 Action Center "UAC is disabled".

    Nyima,

    Thanks for suggestion, but that solution doesn't solve issue that I pointed here.

    I am completly aware that setting UAC slider to top, "Always notify" option will stop Action Center to notify me about disabled UAC. But that is not what I want.

    I want UAC to stay completely disabled and I don't want Action Center to notify me about that fact, because I personaly put it that way.

    So, do you have any suggestion how can I solve this incovenient issue?

    Thanks!

  4. Can't keep UAC disabled (never notify)

    Any way to enable an admin password for UAC in windows 10?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if this helps:



    • Open User Account Control Settings by clicking the Start button.
    • Then type uac, and then click Change User Account Control settings.

    • Do one of the following:
    • To turn off UAC, move the slider to the Never notify position, and then click
      OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. You will need to restart your computer for UAC to be turned off.
    • To turn on UAC, move the slider to choose when you want to be notified, and then click
      OK. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
