2. Step Next, Right click on the Action Center icon (the flag icon) in the system tray (notification area) and then select Open Action Center.
3. Step Next, click on the ‘Change SmartScreen settings’ on the left pane of the screen.
4. Step Finally select / tick Turn off Windows SmartScreen and Click on the OK button. That are the complete steps to disable Windows 8 smartscreen.
With SmartScreen Filter you can protect your system from various internet threats like phishing, malware and more.
