Hello everyone, this guide will show you how to open Task Manager on Windows 11 by following our simple step-by-step tutorial. We’ve included multiple ways to run Task Manager in case you prefer one method over the others.
We think it would be helpful for Microsoft to include the traditional method for running Task Manager, which is to right-click on the task bar and select Task Manager. It’s a simple and well-known method that many Windows users, especially those familiar with Windows 10, are used to. It’s unclear why Microsoft decided to remove this option, but we hope they will add it back in the future. Let us know in the comments below if you have any thoughts on this or if you have any suggestions for other methods to run Task Manager.

What is a task manager?
A task manager is a program that allows a user to view and manage the processes and programs running on their computer. It typically displays information about the CPU, memory, and disk usage, as well as a list of active processes and programs. A task manager can also be used to terminate processes and programs, adjust their priority, and monitor their resource usage. Some task managers also provide additional features, such as performance monitoring, startup management, and system information. Task managers are a useful tool for identifying and troubleshooting performance issues on a computer.
