Step 4: Configure the UAC notification settings

If we try to decrease the current level of control, you’d see that Windows doesn’t recommend the setting. It recommends you only choose this setting if your desktop takes a long time to dim. If you want to work with programs that are not certified for Windows 7, drop the control meter to its lowest point.
A user who installs new software every now and then and visits unfamiliar websites may set the meter to always notify. Click on the ok button in order to exit the window and apply the UAC
notification settings. In this manner, you can configure the uac settings.
