We will discuss it a little more, User Account Control (UAC) is a Windows security system that was created since the Windows Vista era and aims to notify users if there is software that has the potential to make changes to the system. So with this UAC, you can choose to run it (if you trust the software) or vice versa.
Same as Windows SmartScreen. You can also set this UAC as you wish. And just like Windows 10, the steps we can take on Windows 11 itself are still the same because we still rely on the Control Panel which is still available on Microsoft’s new OS.
So here as an experiment, I’m using Windows 11 Insider Beta Build 22623.891, and it should be even in Insider Dev and Stable, the steps are still the same, as long as Microsoft hasn’t moved this feature to Settings in Windows 11.
The following WinPoin summarizes How to Set User Account Control in Windows 11
Step 1. First, please open the Control Panel (just type Control Panel in the Search Bar or in the Start Menu).
Step 2. Next go to System and Security > Change User Account Control settings.
Then on the page that will open, click Change settings in the User Account Control option.
Now after that, you can adjust the settings of this UAC, which include:
- Always notify me when : Then the system will always bring up UAC when you want to install a new application or when you want to make changes to the system.
- Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (default) : Then the system will only show UAC when the user wants to install a new application.
- Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop) : Same as number 2, only this option will not Dim/dim the desktop screen when the UAC window appears.
- Never notify me when : Then the system will not provide notifications when a new application will be installed or make changes to the system.

Step 3. After you set it, click OK and you’re done.
After that, the User Account Control settings have changed according to the settings you specified. Going forward, we still don’t know whether this feature will be maintained in the Control Panel or instead it will be moved to the Settings page in Windows 11, if so, of course WinPoin will report it, make sure you stay on the Indonesian Portal Windows.
