    8. Click OK

    Note: In Windows 8 and 10, this does not fully disable UAC, only reduces its functionality; completely disabling UAC is done through the Windows Registry or Group Policy Editor. This is not recommended. Once the needed task is complete, you will need to re-enable UAC so that the use of Metro apps such as Calc – the calculator app are not affected.  Any Metro app will be broken if the registry key is altered.

    Section IV: Disable UAC in Registry — Back up the registry first; see Related resources

    2. Type regedit
    3. Click OK
    4. Click Yes if prompted
    5. Go up to the top to File and then down to Export and save a backup somewhere you will remember
    6. In the left pane, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    7. In the right pane, double-click EnableLUA
    8. Change Value Data to 0
    9. Click OK
    10. Close the Registry Editor
    11. Restart the computer

      Note: To re-enable UAC, repeat these steps, but on Step 8 change Value Data to 1
