Using the Windows 8 or Windows 10 Task Manager

In this video, we show you the Windows Task Manager. This handy little tool can be accessed at any time and can help you troubleshoot applications that have frozen, become unresponsive or locked up. Need to close a program but can’t seem to close its window? Need to check if a program is running invisibly in the background? The Windows Task Manager can help you. The Task Manager works a little differently in Windows 8 and Windows 10, so we’ve prepared this tutorial specially for Windows 8 or 10 users.

Windows 10 users – This video was recorded using Windows 8, but the Task Manager works in exactly the same way in Windows 10. The only difference is that you launch it by searching for “Task Manager” on the search bar rather than the Start screen. The keyboard short cuts for launching Task Manager are exactly the same as in Windows 8.

Additional notes

Generally speaking, you should not need to close applications from within the task manager unless the application is not responding normally. There’s no reason to close an application that is functioning normally from within the Task Manager.
