Windows 10 is made up of many elements and functions, an operating system that over the years has grown in power and complexity, all thanks to the almost constant updates that Microsoft sends users with new features and enhancements for some of the existing ones.

At the same time, there are several tools that have been part of Windows for many years and that, despite the years that have passed, are still there, greatly helping the hundreds of millions of users who have the most used operating system for desktop computers. of the world. Well, among these we can make a special mention of the Windows 10 Task Manager, a tool that surely on more than one occasion has saved us from a mess with the computer.

Specifically, we are talking about a powerful tool that offers us useful information on the system regarding the general use of system resources, process statistics, tools that are executed at system startup, etc. Therefore, to access it we have several ways, although perhaps the fastest is through the combination of keys “Ctrl + Shift + Esc”.

Once in it, in the first instance we find a small window that houses a series of running applications that we can close from here with the “End task” button. At the same time, we can also right-click on one of them to carry out other actions such as going to the application window, executing new tasks, or making the one indicated always visible in the foreground. However, the interesting thing comes if we click on the “More details” section, which is when the window expands and the rest of the Task Manager functions appear.

Thus, first of all we are going to find an interface with several tabs located at the top of it, so in principle we are in the so-called “Processes”. Here we will see an extensive list with all the processes that are running in Windows at that time, both those corresponding to the applications that we have open, as well as all the processes and services that run in the background belonging to the operating system itself. We can close any of these elements by clicking on it and selecting “End task” from the lower right corner of the window.

Similarly, if we click on any of them with the right button of the mouse, we will have access to other additional functions such as the sample details of the same, which will move us to the “Details” tab, access the folder where locates the application or process, or the properties of the file to which it refers. At the same time, a good as well as useful information about each of the processes and applications will appear on the screen, since we will have the opportunity to see the consumption of RAM, GPU, Network, disk and CPU of each one, which it will be helpful to know which ones to end if the PC is not working properly or which is blocking it.

This is a section that will also be very useful when a certain tool has been blocked and we cannot close it from the desktop, since this closure will be forced from the Task Manager.

Of course, if what interests us the most is everything related to the performance of the equipment at that precise moment, in real time, and how they affect the applications that we have running, it is best that we go to the tab called precisely “Performance” . And here we are going to find a series of graphs related to the consumption in real time of the sections that we have mentioned above, but of course, all this expressed in a much more visual way. We can also click on each of the sections that are located on the left of the window to be able to access that graph related to the performance of each of the sections individually: CPU, memory, disk drives, network, or GPU.

Changing the third, in the event that we choose to access the tab called “Application History”, we are faced with another extensive list of UWP tools that are installed in Windows 10, so that we can see the CPU usage time of the equipment and network resources that they made in the past, while we had them open. This is something that will also be of great help to us when it comes to knowing which are the apps that consume the most and which negatively affect the functioning of the team in general.

Now we are going to move on to another of the most important tabs, next to “Processes”, which we are going to find in this Task Manager, specifically we refer to the so-called “Start”. And it is that from it we will have the possibility of specifying which applications we want to start at the start of the system in an automated way, and which ones not.

To do this, all we have to do is go to the entries that we find in this section, and right-click on each of them to enable or disable it. We can also see the impact that these have on the start of Windows 10 in the event that we leave them active in this section.

Likewise, in the “Users” tab, as its name indicates, we can control and manage the user accounts that we have registered in the operating system, something especially useful in the case that we are PC administrators and want to, for example , manage any of those accounts, or even disconnect it so that it does not continue to consume computer resources. And it is that together with each account, we will see the consumption of RAM, CPU, disk or network that each one of them does independently.
