  • Hello,

    There is actually running two task manager in Windows 8.

    One is the one that we used to in previous versions of Windows OS. Now that is called Desktop Task Manager.

    The other one is new and improved Windows task manager. This tool has more information that will help users looking for details of resource usage.

    This double tools is same for IE10 for example. You can switch to Desktop Internet Explorer from the new IE10 interface.

    Another example is Control Panel.

    I believe with upcoming features this Desktop ... applications will diminish one by one as the UI for new tools are as powerful as the desktop ones


    Windows 8
