How to disable user account control in Windows 10

User Account Control (UAC) is a feature that has been deployed on the Microsoft system since Windows Vista. The function can be a bit annoying because of your constant requests for authorization for any action on the computer. However, it is worth mentioning that UAC is an important security tool, which monitors changes in the system.

In newer versions of Windows, the function is more streamlined and with less user interaction. However, if the feature is not required for you, you can disable it. Here's how to do this in Windows 10.
