Hello lovely people 🙂
Have you ever asked yourself – how can I open up *Task Manager* with the *All Users* view rather than viewing just on your own process? OK, probably not, but you might have thought something along the lines of ‘how can I make this easier?’. This computer repairs article is going to help out with making the task of opening All Users view in Windows and or Visa easier. One thing at a time, ok. You will still need to write that report and pick up the kids from daycare yourself. No shortcut for that. 🙁
So, for those left wondering what we are talking about on the *Processes* tab in *Task Manager* there is a button called *Show processes from all users* which will re-open the Task Manager in order to show all the processes, if you need to do this a lot it can be very annoying.
Right-click on the desktop or elsewhere, and then choose New Shortcut from the menu.
Add the following command into the shortcut location box.
When you have added the command, go to the next screen and give the shortcut a name – we chose *Task Manager (All Users) as the name as it described what it is
Open *Properties* by right clicking on it. You can add a shortcut key if you would like (note that the shortcut needs to be on the desktop or in the start menu for this to work)…
And now for the most important step, click the Advanced button and choose the *Run as administrator* checkbox.
You now have a shortcut that will immediately open up Task Manager to the all users view (after a UAC prompt).
