How do I edit the UAC which I assume is User Access Control?

Yes. UAC is User Access Control.
It's only available in the v5 'Pro' version.
Go to the menu bar on the left of the program window. To the very bottom and into 'Setup'. See the UAC tab.
You don't need to add users. Users are added automatically. When a user connects to the database for the very first time the user's Windows user name is added to the list and can be seen in the UAC tab.
Initially a user has full access. The UAC grid is simply a list of user names and columns for each main area of the program. Click a cell and a small menu appears where you can select the permission for that user in that area of the software. Read/Write/None
A user can't change their own permissions. Any admin user can change permissions of any other user but not his/her own.

I am doing a trial and when I click on about is shows MiniMRP Professional Edition 18.104.22.168. I do not see the small menu appear when I click in a cell. Maybe does not work during the trial?

Never mind. I figured it out. Thanks. I am sure I will have many more questions.

I just took a look myself to see why it need to be 'figured out'. It's supposed to be quite straight forward.
But, to be honest, it took me a moment to remember how to use it - so it's not quite as straight forward as we thought. Took me a moment to remember that you have to disable a user's 'Admin' permission before you can access that user's permissions elsewhere. So, the cells are locked until you disable a user's admin permission. Click the word 'Admin' next to the user's name and select 'No'.
But I do think we should make this a little more obvious. I'll see what we can do.
