How can I check in Windows if application is launched with administrative privileges? I see no corresponding column in Task Manager.
To check whether processes are running as elevated in Windows 10 do the following:
- Open Task Manager
- Go to the Details tab
- Hover your mouse somewhere in the thin horizontal bar at the top of the Details window pane where the columns are labeled (such as Name, PID, Status, User name, etc..)
- Right-click your mouse and choose Select Columns.
- In the new window that opens up scroll down towards the bottom and you'll see an unselected check box labeled Elevated. Check that box and click OK to close that window.
- Now your Details tab of Task Manager will be showing a new Elevated column. Look for an app that is launched and check to see if it is running with Elevated Privileges.
