This tutorial will show you how to determine if a program or process is running as administrator (elevated) or not in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.



Here's How:

1. Open the Task Manager in more details view.

2. If prompted by UAC, then click/tap on Yes.

3. Click/tap on the Details tab, right click or press and hold on a column header, and click/tap on Select columns. (see screenshot below)

5. You can now look in the Elevated column to see if a process in the Name column is running elevated or not. (see screenshot below)

Note   Note
If you like, you can also click/tap and hold on the Elevated column name header to be able to drag and drop the column where you like between the other columns.

Yes = running as administrator (elevated)

No = not running as administrator (elevated)
