Privacy and Security Change User Account Control (UAC) Settings in Windows 11

This tutorial will show you how to change User Account Control (UAC) settings in Windows 11.

User Account Control (UAC) helps prevent malware from damaging a PC and helps organizations deploy a better-managed desktop. With UAC, apps and tasks always run in the security context of a non-administrator account, unless an administrator specifically authorizes administrator-level access to the system. UAC can block the automatic installation of unauthorized apps and prevent inadvertent changes to system settings.

UAC allows all users to log on to their computers using a standard user account. Processes launched using a standard user token may perform tasks using access rights granted to a standard user. For instance, Windows Explorer automatically inherits standard user level permissions. Additionally, any apps that are started using Windows Explorer (for example, by double-clicking a shortcut) also run with the standard set of user permissions. Many apps, including those that are included with the operating system itself, are designed to work properly in this way.

Other apps, especially those that were not specifically designed with security settings in mind, often require additional permissions to run successfully. These types of apps are referred to as legacy apps. Additionally, actions such as installing new software and making configuration changes to the Windows Firewall, require more permissions than what is available to a standard user account.

When an app needs to run with more than standard user rights, UAC can restore additional user groups to the token. This enables the user to have explicit control of apps that are making system level changes to their computer or device.

UAC settingDescription
Always notify
  • Notify you when programs try to install software or make changes to your computer.
  • Notify you when you make changes to Windows settings.
  • Freeze other tasks until you respond.
  • Note: This option is recommended if you routinely install new software or visit unfamiliar websites.
Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (default)
  • Notify you when programs try to install software or make changes to your computer.
  • Not notify you when you make changes to Windows settings.
  • Freeze other tasks until you respond.
  • Note: This option is recommended if you routinely install new software or visit unfamiliar websites, but you don't want to be notified when you make changes to Windows settings.
Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop)
  • Notify you when programs try to install software or make changes to your computer.
  • Not notify you when you make changes to Windows settings.
  • Not freeze other tasks or wait for a response.
  • Note: This option is only recommended if it takes a long time to dim the desktop on your computer. Otherwise, it's recommended to choose one of the options above.
Never notify (Disable UAC)
  • Not notify you when programs try to install software or make changes to your computer.
  • Not notify you when you make changes to Windows settings.
  • Not freeze other tasks or wait for a response.
  • Note: This option isn't recommended due to security concerns.

You must be signed in as an administrator to change User Account Control (UAC) settings.



Contents

  • Option One: Change User Account Control settings in Control Panel
  • Option Two: Change User Account Control settings using REG file


EXAMPLE: User Account Control prompt

Option One

Change User Account Control Settings in Control Panel


1 Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the User Accounts icon.

2 Click/tap on the Change User Account Control settings link. (see screenshot below)

This will open the C:\Windows\System32\UserAccountControlSettings.exe file.

"ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin"=dword:00000002

3 For "Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (default)"

This is the default setting.


A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 6 below.

UAC_Default.reg


(Contents of REG file for reference)

I'm one of those users that completely disables UAC. I've never used it as it is irritating at the very minimum. It's not needed as I run security software that does the same thing but in a much better way.

Ditto. It doesn't provide any useful protection as far as I can tell. New executable? Well you probably downloaded it intending on running it and have got to decide whether you trust it or not. Based on what, mind scan? Then once you have launched it, as long as there are no immediate consequences, you will continue to do so, even if you update the executable I expect, but every time you do you have to jump through some pointless hoops. It might be useful if, on the first time you launched it, you had the choice to opt-out of UAC for that executable from then on.

Am I missing something?

Do you have 3rd party app. that controls permissions.. like SU does on Linux?

Not being facetious.. but the point of control is malicious self-elevating processes.

Nice for you.. but from a security point of view not the way to go...this is why MS instituted all the hardware-related security stuff in Win 11.. if everybody ran as standard user and employed proper firewall and AV we would live in milk and honey Windows-land.

Nope. But then again, I'm not a hapless nitwit who navigates to " IShouldNotBeHere.com" clicks on and downloads everything that shows up on my browser. Of course I also run my browser with excellent security focused extensions as well.. Then there is the security suite I run that makes microsofts efforts look like amateur-hour.

UAC is annoying crap and always has been. Full stop.

Microsoft’s description of these settings and therefore this article is misleading. The “never notify” option does not turn UAC off. Setting the “EnableLUA” value to 0 does.

A side effect when having UAC fully disabled that way (and on Windows 10) is there's no longer any tips, etc on the lock screen. Not that it bothers me as such anyway.

Chaps,

I don't want to change the level of UAC that I have already (which is 'notify me when an app tries to change something ...'), and that I happen to like as a level of warning. I simply want the dialogue that appears when UAC wants permission, a program wants to install or change a setting to always appear on top of any windows being shown, and not underneath other stuff being displayed.

It always shows on the taskbar, but because the taskbar is often hidden, and the dialogue doesn't appear on top of anything else that is onscreen I often miss the prompt.

Hello, :alien:

Odd. Usually when you get a UAC prompt, the screen will dim with a transparent black background with the UAC prompt on top.

Do you see that?

I got a question. I noticed recently that I dont have any sound play when i get the UAC pop ups. It ALWAYS used to be there. Anyone else remember it? Ive even seen people talking about it online so i know im not crazy. I went to my system sounds and there is no UAC option in there to even go set it back again. Its gone now. I had UAC off for a while, but then i turned it back on. Is this just how it is now cause id really love a sound when that dialog pops up

I get a sound. Check whether Start Menu, Search, Change system sounds, Program Events, Windows User Account Control, Sounds is set to (None). If so, change that to Windows User Account Control.wav
