The Task Manager in Windows 11 is a powerful tool for troubleshooting performance issues. If you’re experiencing slowdowns, crashes, or other computer problems it could be because of an issue with one of your programs or apps. With the Task Manager open, click on the Processes tab to see which applications are running and how much memory they’re using. From there, you can identify whether it’s an app that needs updating or if there’s another problem affecting your computer speeds.
With the recent introduction of the new Windows 11, few things you are used to accessing easily have shifted. For example, while using Windows 10 or lower versions, you could just right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager from the menu. In case you were not aware, here take a look at the other ways you can open Task Manager on Windows 11 that are different but yield the same results.
How to Open Task Manager in Windows 11 from Start?
One of the easiest processes, and similar to clicking the taskbar on Windows 10, is to right-click the Start menu on Windows 11. Then click on Task Manager from the drop-down menu, that’ll open it. You can click the Search icon and type: task manager, then click the top result you get – exactly how you’d search for something on Windows 10.
How to use a Keyboard Shortcut?
For all my keyboard virtuosos out there, use the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Shift to open Task Manager directly.
Use Ctrl + Alt + Del to open the security screen. Then from the list, select Task Manager.
Click the Windows key to open the Start menu, then type task manager.
How to use the Run Command?
Tap the Windows Key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog, then type: taskmgr, then click on OK or tap the Enter key, which will pop the Task Manager open.
