detail view of Task Manager that several of the same options that we saw in the low-detail view are also available. For example, the End task button. I have a task running here that is hung that I want to kill, I can select it and then come down here and hit End task, and it is closed. If I right-

click on the application, I can click on Switch to to switch to that application, just like we saw before. We can also open the file location to view the executable file that was used to create this application, as well as search onlineand properties just like we saw before, as well. There's another useful option here that was not available previously, and that is Go to details. Notice over here that we have a tab called Details. The Details tab lists detailed information about all the processes running on the system, whereas the Processes tab really kind of lists a high-level view of the processes. So if we have an application running over here like Microsoft Edge, and we want to see which actual processes are used to provide that application, I can click on Go to details, and when we go over here we can see the actual process running on the system, MicrosftEdge.exe. So that's the Processes tab. Performance 6:58-9:41 In addition to Processes, Task Manager also provides the Performance tab, and this is a great way to monitor the overall usage of resources on the system. You can see that you can view stats for the CPU, for memory, for disk I/O, and for network I/O. Let's go back up here to CPU. Now, the information that you see on this tab is basically the same information that we saw over herein the headings of each of these columns. The advantage is there's more details provided over here on the Performance tab, and, notice that there's a 60-second graph display that allows you to see a brief history of activity for that particular statistic, in this case, CPU utilization. You can see that the CPU utilization has been bouncing right along here fairly low and we had one spike right here when we did something that required a little more CPU utilization. Now down here, you'll notice that there are a few more details provided about the CPU. In this case, we can see the current utilization of the CPU. We can also see how fast the CPU is, about 3.6 gigahertz. Here we can see information about the processes running on the system. We have 52 processes being run, 796 threads, 27,440 handles, and down here we can see how long the CPU has been up and running,about two hours. The maximum speed is listed over here, and we have one CPU socket, and we have two cores within the processor package that are running. Now, even though we have two cores in our CPU, you'll notice that we have just one graph that basically combines statistics for both CPUs into a single graph. However, if you want to see a graph for each individual CPU, which is what I prefer when I'm managing a system, you can right-click on the graph, click on Change graph to, and then instead of Overall utilization, switch to Logical processors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
