Call up Windows 10 Task Manager faster

Quickly open the task manager under Windows 10

Windows 10 tips - quick access in Explorer


The task manager has been an important tool / program / app for many versions. It has developed steadily over several versions and received more and more functions. Under Windows 10 something happened to start the task manager and the question arises, how can I open the task manager as quickly as possible?


Who doesn't know the key combination Ctrl + Alt + Del? As a result, the task manager can no longer be opened directly and is no longer the fastest way.

The following options are available to start the task manager under Windows 10:

  1. Keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Del click on Task Manager in the menu
  2. Right-click on the taskbar and in the context menu on Task Manager
  3. Key combination Win key + r and taskmgr and confirm
  4. Or simply the key combination Ctrl + Shift + Esc

The last key combination is arguably the fastest option, but a bit inconvenient on the German keyboard layout. Anyone who works a lot with the mouse will most likely get used to the taskbar.


Have fun with Windows 10

Call up the task manager quickly      

In the task manager you can see, among other things, the currently active applications and processes as well as check the utilization of the CPU and memory. Since several Windows versions, the task manager has been called up by pressing the keys CTRL + ALT + ENF at the same time. With Windows 10, however, a menu appears first in which you still have to select the task manager separately. It's quicker by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting the Task Manager entry in the dialog menu.
