I recently featured the AnVir Task Manager here on the blog and can’t say enough about its’ usefulness. If you are a tech or someone who assists other’s with their Windows based computers I highly recommend you download the portable version of this application. To explain everything that this program can do (and monitor) I have posted below a link to a tutorial video. This program has many, many features and will even serve as a level of protection for your computer to protect you from malware and viruses. Anvir Task Manager goes over and above any task managers that I know of.

“Ctrl-Shift-Esc” is the keyboard combination that will launch the Windows 10 Task Manager. You can also “right-mouse-click” on the Windows taskbar to invoke a menu where you can launch the Task Manager, as well. The Task Manager is especially useful if you need to kill a program that is negatively impacting your computer. Most techies use the task manager solely for that purpose; however, there is a whole lot more to the Windows 10 Task Manager that is often overlooked. Digital Trends has posted a nice (quick read) run down and video of what other featured utilities are available in the Task Manager that you need to know about — READ MORE

While browsing the web today, noticed that Anvir Task Manager FREE has been upgraded. What I love about this utility is that it is available in a portable version (for the tech toolbox), contains a comprehensive set of tools, and will actually provide a level of protection for your PC when any new application adds itself to startup. This is one heavy duty task manager that will definitely sway you from the task manager that ships with Windows.

This geek squeak is a quickie, but is pretty neat. If you have Windows 8, right click on the Windows 8 taskbar at the bottom of your screen, and click on Task Manager. When Task Manager loads, click on the Performance tab. On the left side of the Performance Tab you will see graphical user interface for the CPU, Memory, Disk, Ethernet, etc… Left double click on on any of those and voila you will get a sized down widget version of the performance tab in a floating window that can be moved around and is handy when it comes to troubleshooting problems.
To return back to the full size version of the Task Manager, just left double click anywhere inside the floating window.
