We often use to-do lists, notes and other task management software to organize, record and optimize our daily routine but one of the most important platforms where we spend significant amounts of our time is the Personal Computer. Microsoft Windows always comes with an easy to use Task Manager that allows you to achieve the same goal by analyzing a list of tasks and processes along with the system consumption information. The importance of Task Manager was often realized when the system would get very slow while some of the programs became unresponsive. The Ctrl+Alt+Del keys would always save us in such scenarios and when the explorer stops responding, all you need is to create a New Task with the identity explorer.exe. The End Process and End Process Tree have always been a life-saver for both the usual and the expert users of the computer. But the Task Manager was never an all-in-one solution and you would often had to rely on third party tools to get a better picture of the system resource consumption, startup management, tweaks and optimizations. With Windows 8, the new Task Manager is a comprehensive solution for both the novice as well as the advanced users of the operating system. This post will show you how life has been made simpler by this powerful system tool.
