Task Manager is a powerful tool full of useful information that you may often use in Windows 10. It provides an overview of the status of the computer running and displays detailed statistics for each process. Microsoft is reportedly developing a new application manager, AppManager, that could be implemented in the “Settings” application to gain more control over the process.
This convenient settings-based app feature will give you a quick view of the apps and processes running on your PC. The app is divided into two columns: All and Running. The All List lists applications that are installed and run in the background on the desktop, while the Run column lists all active processes or applications.
The user can select an app here and then click Force Close to end the process, which is useful if an app does not respond. Similarly, you can click the “Uninstall” button to delete the app, even including some built-in components such as Cortana.
AppManager also has another option called Performance, which gives you access to detailed statistics for each process. You can view the CPU, disk, and memory usage of the selected process.
Microsoft is also trying to make touch-optimized “settings” apps play a more important role in users’ work. Currently, the modern App Manager AppManager has a limited range of features, but there is no doubt that new options will be added soon.
Unlike Task Manager, Windows 10’s Settings app also pushes reminder notifications when the app uses too much memory.
The app so far appears to be a prototype for Microsoft, and it could be integrated into Windows 10 setup apps in the future.
