Windows 7 User Account Control (UAC)


UPDATE: A faster way to open the UAC settings in Windows 7 was just brought to my attention by Dean Wells. Click Start, type UAC and press ENTER. Thanks, Dean!


If that doesn’t work for some reason, you can do the following:



  1. Run wscui.cpl from the Start Search or Run dialog box, or launch it from the command prompt.

  2. Then, select the User Account Control settings option on the left side of the screen

  3. Then you’ll see the UAC settings for Windows 7

    regardless of what i do, the UAC doesn't open It's not grayed out and appears to be ok until I click on the icon.
