Task Manager In Windows 8

Introduction

 
In this article, we are explaining how to use the new Task Manager in Windows 8. The Task Manager in Windows 8 has been completely overhauled. The Task Manager now provides many facilities. It's slicker, an easy process to use, can be used to check performance, startup programs and to show IP address and display slick resource usage graphs; see.

The Task Manager processor is divided into three parts first one is apps, the second is background processes and the third is Windows processes.

Step 10
 
If we want to see our system's IP address without using the Control Panel, then we click Ethernet on the Task Manager. Previously that required many clicks.

Then we open the Resource Monitor.

When we open the Resource Monitor application then we click the Network tab. It shows even more information than the Task Manager does.

Step 13
 
The "App history" tab shows how much CPU time and network bandwidth each Metro app has used, so we can identify the resource hogs.

Step 14
 
The Startup tab shows the applications that automatically start with our computer. Windows finally has a way to easily disable startup programs. Windows also measures just how long each application is delaying our startup, so we can make informed decisions.
