OS: W 8.1

  • In Start search, start to type Local Security Policy and it will appear – Davidenko Jul 28 '15 at 5:59
  • You do understand if you disable the prompt this will disable Windows Store applications. You cannot fully disable UAC in Windows 8.0 and above anyways. – Ramhound Jul 28 '15 at 11:17

Make sure you are running Windows 8.1 PRO or Enterprise

You can verify this by check Windows edition enter image description here

If so, the shortcut from Administrative Tools may be missing, you can run gpedit.msc from command prompt to open Local Security Policy
