Changing the UAC, Windows 7
Vista started us on the path of Windows trying to make sure programs can’t install or make changes to our computers.
This is done by darkening the screen and having a message box pop up asking if we want to allow this program to make any changes. This is a good idea but can get really old when we are trying to get stuff done.
Luckily, there is a way to edit and change the level of security.
(click images to enlarge)
1a. Click that “Start” circle;
1b. then choose control panel.
(Step two is for category view of the control panel; if you have the icon view click “User Accounts” and skip to step 4.)
2. Click the people.
3. Click the people again
4. Click “Change User Account Control Settings”.
5. Change the level of security with the slider bar; the higher the bar, the more security (and higher the annoyance).
