  1. How to remove the User Account Control from user's machine


    Hi,

    I have just set up a new user here in the office and configured her laptop with all the software access she requires. I've also set her up on the local domain and she has an account. I have made sure she has Administrator rights.


    Anyway as I worked through her laptop and wanted to download some further software and updates on the Dell website for drivers, a User Account Control pop up box has appeared. I have to each time enter in my admin credentials which is annoying. As the new user will be working remotely I do not want this to appear as I won't be around to enter in my admin credentials and just want to have this remove. I know this can be edited in the "Change User Account Control Settings" but in order to do this I have to enter in my admin details.


    I have checked on her profile and it says she is an Administrator and checked under local users group and again she is a member of administrators. This is driving me mad and it says an Administrator is needed to amend the scroll bar to "Never Notify". I cannot do this as I need to log on as an administrator.


    Any help?


    Steve

    :)

    Hi Jack,

    Deleting a user account in a Windows device can be done by an administrator. Before removing the user account, make sure that you are using an administrator account to avoid errors.

    Follow these steps to remove a user account in your computer:

    • Open the Control Panel.
    • Click on User Accounts and then Select User Accounts.
    • Click on Manage User Accounts.
    • Choose the account that you want to delete.
    • Click on Delete the account.
    • Choose if you want to keep the files or delete the files in the user account that you'll be removing.
    • Click on Delete Account button to complete the process.

    You will not be able to delete a user account that is currently signed in. You will need to sign out the user first.

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings.
    • Click on Account, click on Family and other users.
    • Select the user you want to delete under Other users and click on
      Remove.
    • Accept the UAC (User Account Control) prompt.
    • Select Delete account and data if you wish to delete an account and the data and follow onscreen instructions.

      OR
    Step 2: Steps to Delete a User Account in Command Prompt

    • Press Windows + X keys from the keyboard, select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type net user and hit Enter to list the user accounts on your device.
