What Is UAC?

UAC is a security feature in Windows 10 that prevents unauthorized or inadvertent changes to lớn the operating system. The feature was first a part of the Windows Vista security system and has since been improved with each new version of Windows.

Each time you run a desktop app that requires admin permissions, the UAC pops up. You’ll also see it when you want to lớn change important system settings that require admin approval.

Any users on your network can sign into their computers using a standard user account, but any processes they launch will be performed using access rights granted khổng lồ a standard user.

For example, any apps started using Windows Explorer will run with standard user cấp độ permissions. This includes apps included with Windows 10 itself.
