Change settings in Win 8.1/8 when to be notified about changes on your computer!


Solution to change the settings in Windows 8.1, 8  and 10 when to be notified about changes on your computer!



Please use UserAccountControlSettings.exe! For example  via Command-Prompt Windows+R and the command UserAccountControlSettings.exe ! (... see Image-1 Arrow-1)

And customize the Windows 8.1 or 8 when to be notified! (... see Image-2 Arrow-2)!

User Account Control (UAC) notifies you before changes are made to your PC that require administrator-level privileges.
By default, UAC is set to notify you whenever apps try to make changes to your PC, but you can change how often UAC notifies you. (... see Image-1 Arrow-1)!

Important info from (c) Microsoft!

  1. Always notify me

    This is the most secure setting. When you're notified, you should carefully read the contents of each dialog box before allowing changes to be made to your PC.
    • You'll be notified before apps make changes to your PC or to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.
    • When you're notified, your screen will be dimmed, and you must either approve or deny the request in the UAC dialog box before you can do anything else on your PC.
  2. Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (default)

    It's usually safe to allow changes to be made to Windows settings without you being notified. However, certain apps that come with Windows can have commands or data passed to them, and malicious software can take advantage of this by using these apps to install files or change settings on your PC. You should always be careful about which apps you allow to run on your PC.
    • You'll be notified before apps make changes to your PC that require administrator permissions.
    • You'll be notified if an app tries to make changes to a Windows setting.
    • You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.
  3. Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (don't dim my desktop)

    If you choose this option, other apps might be able to interfere with the visual appearance of the UAC dialog box. This is a security risk, especially if there's malware on your PC.
    • You'll be notified before apps make changes to your PC that require administrator permissions.
    • You'll be notified if an app tries to make changes to a Windows setting.
    • You won't be notified if you try to make changes to Windows settings that require administrator permissions.
    • This setting is the same as "Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer," but your desktop won't get dimmed.
  4. Never notify me

    This is the least secure setting. When you set UAC to never notify, you effectively turn off UAC. This opens up your PC to potential security risks. If you set UAC to never notify, you should be careful about which apps you run, because they'll have the same access to the PC as you do. This includes reading and making changes to protected system areas, your personal data, saved files, and anything else stored on the PC. Apps will also be able to communicate and transfer info to and from anything your PC connects with, including the Internet.
    • You won't be notified before any changes are made to your PC. If you're signed in as an administrator, apps can make changes to your PC without your knowledge.
    • If you're signed with a standard user account, any changes that require administrator permissions will automatically be denied.
