I was trying to close a non-responsive process, and after the first time I clicked "End Process", nothing happened. So I did it again and this time a window popped up saying "Access is Denied". Eventually the process did close, but this got me thinking..
If I had ran task manager as an administrator, would it have still gave me this "Access is Denied" message? Or, in-fact, does Windows 10 run task manager as an administrator by default (when the user account is an administrator). Furthermore, is there any difference between running it as administrator or not?
Running it as admin via this method:
I don't see any noticeable differences between that and just doing Ctrl+Shift+Escape.
Note: This question is specifically for Windows 10 (and possibly 8/8.1) and I am running Pro. Also, my UAC set to 'Never notify'.
