Here’s a nifty trick if you are trying to check just what programs are using your PC’s resources.
You probably know that you can press Ctrl+Alt+Del and choose to open Task Manager to see what’s going on with your PC.
You’ve probably also noticed that the information about those processes can fly by quickly, making it difficult to get the information you’re looking for. I’ve got a quick tip that changes that.
Just press and hold the Ctrl key. That will pause the Task Manager’s updates and let you get a better look at what’s happening. The date will stay paused as long as you hold the key down.
