If you’re familiar with Windows Vista, you may know about the two types of UAC Settings. Whereas, Windows 7 features you more settings.
Now, let’s look at the steps to adjust the UAC Settings in Windows 7.
•    First, open the User Account Control Settings by typing UAC in the Start Search box.
•    Then, click Change User Account Control Settings in the Control Panel window.

•    Then, click on OK.
•    Now, you can view four UAC settings that you can choose from.



The options are:

a.    Always notify

You can select this setting to:
o    Always want to be notified when programs try to install software or make chanegs to your computer
o    Make changes to Windows settings.
