    What has to be done for disabling UAC feature on Windows 8?

    I have recently upgraded my PC to Windows 8. Since then, I keep getting prompt messages while making any changes. When I searched, I found it appears due to User Account Control (UAC) feature on Windows 8. What should I do to disable this feature?

    You can disable it from either Metro screen or Windows Explorer. Type msconfig into the metro screen and select the option appears on the screen. Press the ‘Tools’ tab afterwards and click the ‘Change UAC Settings’ option. Then, press the ‘Launch’ button and choose the bottom option visible on the screen. If you are using Windows Explorer, then first highlight ‘Computer’ option and click the ‘Open Control Panel’ option available at the top part of the window. Choose ‘User Accounts and Family Safety’ option afterwards and select ‘User Accounts’ item. Finally, click on the Change User Account Control settings link to disable ‘UAC’ feature.

    Disable the Windows 8 UAC with a Registry Tweak

    Launch Regedit and navigate to the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System

    Locate the following REG_DWORD value:
    EnableLUA

    Set the value of EnableLUA to 0. See screenshot below.

    Note 1: Changing EnableLUA is one of those settings where you need to reboot the computer before it takes effect.
    Note 2: To enable the Windows 8 UAC, set EnablueLUA to 1.
    Note 3: If you like this registry hack, then click on regedit's Favorites menu, and Add to favorites'. This saves time if you ever have to return to this place in the registr
