User Account Control (UAC), which was original introduced with Windows 7’s predecessor Vista to improve Windows security, is part of Windows 7 as well. While UAC shields your PC by preventing unauthorized installation of programs and changing default Windows settings.
The problem with UAC is that it interrupts when you try to install applications downloaded from the web, launch various admin tools and when you try to change default system settings. For instance, when you try to launch Command Prompt to enable hibernation mode, you need to open the elevated prompt and when you try to launch elevated prompt, UAC dialog appears.
The UAC prompt appears even if you hold an admin account. Many users find UAC annoying and want to disable the same.
Do you change UAC settings frequently? Would you like to change Windows 7 User Account Control settings with a click? UAC Controller Tool is the ideal tool for you. It’s a portable utility to control User Account Control settings right from the notification area. The tool comes with five UAC settings:
# Turn UAC Off (This will disable UAC functionality)
# Enable elevation without prompt for Administrators
# Switch to default UAC settings
# Switch to UAC to user friendly mode (desktop will not be dimmed)
# Keep UAC on
As you can see, the tool comes with an advanced option Enable elevation without prompt for Admin which is not available in the Windows UAC. We suggest you choose the Switch UAC to User Friendly Mode rather than turning it off. When in User Friendly mode, UAC notifies only when programs trying to make changes to Windows. Another cool thing is that this mode doesn’t dim your desktop while showing the notification.
UAC Controller Tool comes in handy for those users who change UAC settings regularly or users who want to turn it off. Besides, it lets you as you access all these settings from notification area (system tray) itself. Simply download and run the program to start changing UAC settings with a click.
