Purchasing Windows 10

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to set up Windows 10 in a similar manner to Windows 7, with UAC disabled, and also the ability to STOP automatic driver updates. Is this possible in Windows 10 Home? If not, is it possible in Windows 10 Professional?

Yes is the simple answer. To stop driver updates, take a look at: https://pureinfotech.com/exclude-driver-updates-windows-10/. I've never understood the apparent hatred of UAC. It introduces an extra layer of security and only requires a single extra click and an additional few seconds to open a program: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/uac-why-you-should-never-turn-it-off

As far as UAC is concerned, I have had it disabled in Windows 7 for the five years that I have had the OS installed. No requests for user permission with anything, no requirement to ever run anything as administrator, and no obvious problems. That is what I want in Windows 10.

It seems to me that UAC is more useful on computers with multiple users than for single users. There is a higher level admin account than the admin account you create in W10. So no, there will always be a possible need to run as admin, but not often.

I think that I will stick with Windows 10 Home Edition. Thanks for all the comments.

Christopher, good choice indeed. I've had my UAC setting turned right down for many years. All it seemed to do was to nag!.
