Several ways to launch the task manager in Windows



I was doing a remote connect to a machine today and the “send ctrl-alt-del” for some reason didn’t work to bring up the task manager, so I had to get to it another way. For those that never noticed (or don’t recall), if you right click on the taskbar, you should see an option to launch the task manager. (I was looking to kill off a program that was being uncooperative.) Another way to get it is to press ctrl-shift-esc and it will popup.


Of course, the task manager can be useful for monitoring cpu load, memory usage, networking throughput and for ending running processes. (And just seeing what all is running in the background.) The other thing that’s nice is you can use it to launch a command (for those times that the startmenu bar doesn’t respond and bring up the run… dialog.)
