If you’ve ever used the Windows operating system, you’re probably familiar with the ‘Run As Administrator option. It’s a feature that allows programs to access restricted areas of their Windows 10 system with particular permissions. When you execute software as an administrator, you are giving it administrative rights.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, Microsoft advises against executing apps as an administrator. In Windows 10/11, we frequently run a variety of different apps/processes with administrative capabilities. However, it’s easy to lose track of which programs are running with administrative capabilities.
Running programs without knowing if they have elevated access can lead to a slew of problems. As a result, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on any programs that have admin access running on your Windows 10/11 computer.
Steps to Check if a Process is Running as Administrator
As a result, in this post, we’ll show you how to verify if a process in Windows 11 is running with administrative privileges. Let’s get this party started.
1. Start by typing Task Manager into the Windows 11 search box. From the list, select Task Manager.
2. Select More information from the Task Manager, as shown below.
3. Now, as indicated in the picture below, go to the Details tab and click it.
4. Now choose columns by right-clicking on any of the column headers.
5. Select the Elevated option on the Select Columns page and click the Ok button.
6. An Elevated Colum will now be visible in Taskmanager’s Details tab. The process is operating with administrator rights if the column for Yes is set to Yes.
That concludes the procedure. You’ve completed your mission. In Windows 11, you may use this method to see if a process has Admin Privileges.
