12. System Performance > 112. Speed Up System Performance with the Task Manager

Speed Up System Performance with the Task Manager

This humble tool does more than show you what applications are running; it can help you juice up your PC’s performance as well.

Most XP users know the Task Manager will show them all programs and processes running on their system and that it will let them shut down any they don’t want to run any longer. But it can do much more than that; it can also help fine-tune system performance.

Tip

The Task Manager can also help you get the most out of your existing RAM. For details, see [Hack #109] .

There are three common ways to run the Task Manager:

  • Press Ctrl-Alt-Del

  • Press Ctrl-Shift-Esc

  • Right-click the taskbar and choose Task Manager
