Task Manager in Windows 10 comes with neat features. It can analyze the performance of various hardware components and also shows you all the processes running in your user session, grouped by app or process type.

Windows 10's Task Manager includes a performance graph and startup impact calculation. It is able to control which apps launch during startup. There is a special tab "Startup" which is designed to manage startup apps.

Tip: You can save your time by creating a special shortcut to open the Task Manager directly on the Startup tab.

Also, it is possible to make Task Manager show the command line of apps on the Processes, Details and Startup tabs. When enabled, it will allow you to quickly see which folder an app is launched from, and what its command line arguments are. For reference, see the article

In addition to these great features, Task Manager is able to show DPI awareness for processes.

Starting in Windows 10 build 18963, you can use the Task Manager app to monitor the  temperature of the discrete graphic adapter on PCs and Laptops.

  • Showing the GPU temperature in Task Manager is currently only supported if you have a dedicated GPU card.
  • You may need an updated graphics driver to see the temperature. Specifically one which supports version 2.4 (or higher) of WDDM is required. See which version your PC has.
