Task Manager

The Task Manager is one tool you're bound to frequent, perhaps more than any other. Whenever an application crashes, you believe you're running some suspect process that you want to kill, or you want to check on the state of system resources (for example, RAM usage), you can use the Task Manager. Even as nothing more than an educational tool, the Task Manager is informative.

The Task Manager is always available, with a simple press of the “three-finger salute” (Ctrl+Alt+Del), and up pops the Task Manager (see Figure 27.17). Note that this is different from Windows NT and Windows 2000 where the Windows Security dialog box appeared following this keystroke pattern. You can also launch the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc or right-clicking over an empty area on the Taskbar and selecting Task Manager from the pop-up menu.
