Task Manager DeLuxe is a completely free software that provides you with an alternative to default Windows task manager. It looks to be a good replacement as it includes a little more features that I will talk about through the course of this article. It is a very easy to download software and will occupy minimal space. Process Director is another free task manager for Windows that can be used.
The essential task of any task manager is to completely control the functions that the system performs. It includes all the processes, services, programs you want run on startup and many more. This task manager allows you to perform these tasks with full capacity. In addition to that, this task manager includes some add on functions like AutoRefresh, snapshot. If you select the AutoRefresh option, the software will automatically refresh the list in the specified time. The Snapshot option is given in the dropdown menu on the top left corner of the interface. Both these functions, however, did not work while testing.
Manage Programs,Tasks With Task Manager DeLuxe
To introduce you to the software, the Interface has a very detailed outlook. It does not look very attractive but performs its task effectively. The division of tasks into different tabs makes it easier for users to understand the functioning of this task manager.
The first tab provides you with the information of all the processes taking place on your system and an option to terminate any of them. Details like Filename, Username, File size are provided along with every individual process. Another way of having a detailed description of any particular process is by double clicking on that particular process. An Information tab will pop up from below that will provide you with every minute detail. This feature is not available in the default task manager of Windows.
The Service tab shows you the details of all the background tasks. It includes all the running and stopped services. The service Manager Button at the bottom left provides you with detailed description. When you click that button, a new window opens up where you can view the description of all the services individually. Option to start/stop,Uninstall, any service is also given.
The software also allows you to select programs that you want to Autorun as soon as your machine starts. The autoruns tab provides you with the list of the current programs that turn on when your system starts. You can then tick any program that you wish to eliminate from that list and remove it.
There is also one performance tab that shows shows you the memory usage and speed of your system. This is represented in a graph that makes it good looking.
Along with all these tabs, there are many other functions this task manager can perform. They are given on top of the main interface. You can filter the list by the typing the name of the program. The software will show actions of that particular program. You can also change the display by clicking display as tree option.
It is a very good software that makes task managing a comparatively easy errand to perform. I really liked it.
