    When I throw away an app I have to enter a password, when I edit files in certain folder I have to enter a password and so on. I don't want this, so how can I disable it?

    I know you can add permissions to a certain folder so entering a password is not required but this is just for individual folders. Can I change it on a wider scale so I don't have to enter a password all the time or change permissions on every folder?

    Having an admin password that is required for certain functions is an important security feature. It is not advisable to operate without an admin password, as you would be making your Mac more vulnerable to unauthorized use and malware. You can choose a password that's easier to type, but I wouldn't recommend removing the password completely.
