There are several accounts in Windows 10 which are normal user accounts or administrator accounts. Programs that run under administrator accounts need administrative rights / permissions for access. Once you get admin access, you will be able to make changes to that account like registry editor, etc. But how can you know if the process is running with admin rights to continue?

Here's how you can find it easily.

Step 1: Right-click on the taskbar and select Task Manager. Open the Task Manager window.



Step 2: Navigate to Details tab, click on it and right-click on one of the files column headings. A drop-down menu will open.

Step 3: From the drop-down menu, click Select column. Opens a window with a list of options.

4 phase: Find the Alto option from the list, check the box and press ok.



Step 5: A new column called Alto is added in the Task Manager. It will clearly show which process has admin rights with a file Yup and NO.

After verifying the admin rights, you can choose to hide the column by right-clicking on it and selecting Hide column from the drop-down menu or just uncheck the box Alto option of Select column list.
