Windows UAC, short for User Account Control, is a security feature introduced by Microsoft in Windows Vista and later versions. It’s designed to protect your computer from unauthorized changes by prompting you for permission before certain system-level changes or applications are allowed to run. UAC helps safeguard your system from potential risks posed by malware and other malicious software.

Adding apps to the Startup folder on Windows is a common way to make them launch automatically when you start your computer. However, there’s a limitation – Windows doesn’t permit apps to run with administrative privileges at startup.
