Change user account control settings in Windows

Ostensibly, user account control (UAC) is a feature automatically enabled in Windows that is designed to protect your system from any unwanted changes by notifying you every time an application or service wants to alter your system. In theory, this might sound helpful, but in practice, it’s not very useful due to the sheer number of notifications you’ll get while making legitimate changes. You’ll quickly become desensitized to the notifications and automatically click to proceed, defeating the purpose of the checks. You can disable or change the frequency of UAC notifications by using the Windows search feature and typing in “user account control.” Change the slider to fit your preference of when you want it to notify you so you only get an alert when it really matters.
