  1. How to COMPLETELY turn off User Account Control...?


    Hello,


    We have two users on one of our Win 10 systems. One account is a regular user, and the other is an Administrator.


    Right now, when I log onto the Admin account, User Account Control displays at the bottom of the slider (and that is what I want.)


    But when I log onto the Standard user account, User Account Control displays in the mid range (which I don't want) and if I try to slide it lower, it displays the request that I log in as Administrator.


    How can I turn User Account Control OFF for both users?


    (I have a very large mallet at the ready...)

    Many thanks,


    Lothar

    :)

  2. Unable to Turn On User Account Control

    Hi Nicky,

    User Account Control (UAC) is a feature that was designed to prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. For us to isolate the issue, we suggest
    that you follow these steps to enable the User Account Control (UAC):

    • Click on Start.
    • Type Control Panel, and then press Enter.
    • Click on System and Security.
    • Click on Security and Maintenance.
    • On the left pane, click on Change User Account Control settings.
    • The Slider should be set to the 3rd option from the bottom.
    • Click on OK button.

    Let us know how it goes.

    User account Control

    Hi,

    Administrator accounts are accounts that are allowed complete control over a computer. They are allowed to make changes to settings, get through the User Account Control or UAC prompts to perform elevated tasks, and install programs. which is why in order
    to change the account type of the guest account into an administrator, you will need access or permission to use an administrator account on your computer.

    Once you have access to the administrator account on your computer, follow the steps below on how you can change the user account type of the guest account through the Settings app:

    • Click Start, and then Settings.
    • Click on Accounts, and then Family & other people.
    • Click to select the guest account, and then click the Change account type button.
    • Click on Standard User to open the drop down menu, and then select
      Administrator.
    • Click OK.

    Let us know how it turns out.
