Windows 7: Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

Is there a way to make it so Task Manger will always Show Processes From All Users WITHOUT turning off UAC? It seems like every time I open task manager and want to check the running processes I have to click the button in the bottom left. With UAC off, it seems to always show all users, but with UAC off I can't use my gadgets..

What build are you running? Becase in mine, with UAC fully enabled, I can see a button that reads "Show processes from all users" in the "Processes" tab.

I have that button too, but my point is I hate clicking the button every single time I open task manager. I ALWAYS want to view the processes from all users, why can't windows 7 remember that?

Hello AGlobalThreatsK,

You can create a elevated Task Manager shortcut to use instead for it to always open as "Show Processes From All Users".

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Once they fixed the gadgets so they can be used with UAC off, I didn't need this anymore, and just turned off UAC.

Thanks for the tip though!

You're welcome AGloblasThreatsK. Turning off UAC does decrease your security a bit though by not having that last line of defense to approve a program or malware first before it runs with administrator rights though.
