Disable User Account Control in Windows 8
User Account Control is a technology that was introduced by Microsoft to give users more control over their computers. This was first introduced in the operating system Windows Vista. Majority of the users of Windows Vista has a few issues with the technology. It was upgraded and users saw a much more relaxed version of the technology in operating system Windows 7.
It is a simple technology that restricts applications to have all the privileges until and unless an Administrator authorizes the access. This was introduced to increase the security of the operating system. But most of the users found this rather irritating. This program also slowed down the working of the computer. If you have already used this and would like to disable it on your Windows 8, you can. Think twice before you disable this because couple of services work only with the application. So let’s see how you can do this.
You need to go to the Control Panel in Windows 8 first. This can be found in the ‘Charms’ menu that would be displayed once you move your mouse pointer to the right top corner of the screen.
