    Disable "permissions" in rtm...???


    Just installed rtm, after running rp since June. Now, I can a lot of pop ups concerning permissions. Pretty damn stupid of microturd to tell me I don't have permission to do something on my own damn machine, but it is keeping in line with there overall arrogance.

    So, how do I defeat this nonsense. I permanent fix would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Disable UAC. Set the EnableLUA registry key to 0. the slider is not enough.

    Sorry, but do not do this.


    warning   Warning
    If you set EnableLUA to 0, then you will break Store apps preventing them from being able to run until set back to 1 and restart the computer.



    See this tutorial below instead to help reduce UAC notices.

    When UAC is set to "Never Notify" it doesn't work. I still get pop up window saying access is denied. And the choices: Continue, Skip or Cancel.

    This appears to be a fault in the system. How can I turn off UAC completely? I dont' use Windows apps so this is not relevant.

    Hello Mustang,

    You could use the REG download in step 2 of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below for Windows 7 to completely disable UAC in Windows 8. Do note the warning above about doing this though.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for input Shawn. I tried that regedit download but it made no difference. I also tried the regedit to turn it off totally, but got the same result.

    An example of what happens is if I edit the name of a folder in the Start Menu found in Program Data, then it says I need administrative permission. When I right click on the name of the folder to rename it, the Admin icon is shown in the rename option.

    I'm using W8 Pro OEM on DVD which I purchased and installed yesterday. I've downloaded all Windows updates.

    Ah, ok. You will not be able to make changes to a system folder with applying permission first unless you are logged into the built-in "elevated" Administrator account, or elevate all administrators. It was the same way in Windows 7.

    Hope that works better for you.
