Windows 7: How to default the "SHOW PROCESSES FOR ALL USERS" in task manager

How to default the "SHOW PROCESSES FOR ALL USERS" in task manager

Using TASK MANAGER, as I frequently do, under Windows 7 I have to re-check the SHOW PROCESSES FOR ALL USERS button each time I restart TASK MANAGER.

Is there a way to force it to default to showing all users?

Thanks

I think question of security (UAC), this had been set not like in XP when you was able to only check a box to have this option permanently.

Far as I know there isn't, but if you use it as often as I do when I'm setting up a new system, you can always create a shortcut, right click on it and select run as administrator, which will effectively do the same thing

well when I click it I dont get a prompt, and the reason is task manager is whitelisted on Windows 7 UAC. So doesnt generate the prompt however even without the prompt as others have said it is still protected by UAC until you hit that button. Proof of concept, disable UAC and it will default to all users (I think).

I use this addon Prio - Priority Saver for taskmanager and it allows what you request.
