Task Manager: Fix PC Problems

When you’re driving a car, a quick glance at the dashboard tells you all you need to know about the machine you’re using. You can see at a glance how fast you’re going, how hard the engine is working, whether you’re getting low on fuel, whether you’ve left the handbrake on or the boot open. Windows has its own ‘dashboard’ named Task Manager, and although it’s not stuck right in front of you, it’s available quickly whenever you need it. Along with telling you what your PC is doing and how busy it is, Task Manager can help you fix system problems such as closing programs that have crashed without having to restart your computer. Read on to learn how to make the most of this handy ‘dashboard’.
