Windows 7: How to see privilege level of programs?

How to see privilege level of programs?

Is there any way to see the privilege level (admin or standard) of the programs running?

Thought that maybe Task Manager or Process Expolorer might have a column to show that but they don't seem to have it.

As far as I know, you can only do that by viewing the permissions in the properties of the program's .exe.

In Process Explorer, right click on the "Columns" bar and then "Select Columns..." you want "Integrity Level". Processes with, "Low" are restrictive standboxes (Chrome, IE), "Medium" are Standard users, and "High" is Administrator power.
