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.

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, we only did this in the video as an example of how to use the Task Manager.
