Prevent UAC Prompt for Certain Programs on Windows 10, 8

 
User Account Control (UAC) is a Windows safety caring feature that keeps your system secure. The default mode in UAC is the Admin Approval Mode, which needs administrators to approve functions. This feature of Windows helps in blocking uncertified access to the system. Whenever there are chances to make a change into your system, which could affect the settings of other users on the same system, you will be required administrator privilege to do so.

 

Hence, in terms of safety whenever you try to open or run certain programs, the system asks for UAC; which when confirmed will be allowed to open or run certain programs. The UAC should always be kept on as it acts as security to your system. But there are certain programs which you open frequently and it always asks for your permission.

I often use Registry Editor and it asks for permission every time I open it. So this is a hindrance which keeps annoying me. I am sure there must be many users like me who uses certain programs and don’t like the UAC to prompt every time.
