Open Task Manager quicker!

posted on Monday, October 3, 2011

Shortcuts make a developers work so much easier...

A small example: opening the task manager... You might not know this, but there are at least three ways to open the task manager:

  • A simple right click on the bottom task bar will display a context menu containing the option to open the Task Manager.
  • The good old Ctrl + Alt + Del (which is annoying since Windows Vista, because you don't just get the Task Manager as you used to in XP, you first get a Vista system screen) will dispaly a menu in which you can find the Task Manager.
  • The quick and easy (other) shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Esc, which will get you the Task Manager immediately without having to go past the Vista screen first.

Know other ways? Feel free to add!

Could be useful, right?


  1. If you like keyboard shortcuts, you've gotta check out ReSharper. It is as if you never have to take your hands off the keyboard. It is a plugin for visual studio, but I highly recommend you try it out.

      you've got a great point there! I'm familiar with ReSharper so I know that it's a great tool. Maybe I can do a post about that too :) Thanks for the feedback!
