Windows 7 – Disable / Enable / Turn Off / Turn on – Using the registry /regedit
Here’s how to turn off UAC (User Account Control) using the registry (regedit) in Windows 7.
***Warning….screwing around in the registry can be dangerous….so if you’re a timid person who doesn’t like guns, weapons, and or anything that can cause any type of harm……which is almost any object you can think of (because people in prison can make a shank from almost anything)…then don’t so this. Just go to my other post. Otherwise…..go right ahead. Oh ..and if you screw up your computer….it’s not my fault. You are solely chosing to follow the procedures listed below. THANKS!***
- Go to the command prompt and type regedit and hit enter on your keyboard or click the circular Windows button at the bottom left corner…type regedit in the search box and hit enter on your keyboard
- Navigate here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
- Find EnableLUA on the right and change the value to 0 (that is a ZERO)
- *Optional* Also, if you want to stop the dialog box from prompting, then find ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin on the right and change to 0 (that is a ZERO)
- Close out of the registry and restart you PC!
