I prefer the direct route myself, rather than searching.
You will always spot other useful stuff along the way.
Control Panel > User Accounts > Change User Account Control Settings

Detail and any risks associated with the various UAC settings are to be found here ...

Another option; Just run this command

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
