Disable UAC From the Windows Command Line

Modified on Wed, 19 Aug 2020 at 10:02 PM

From the command line : 

reg ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /f /v FilterAdministratorToken /t REG_DWORD /d 0 

reg ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /f /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0

This works on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

After you disable UAC, you will have to reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
