We have talked about task manager replacements before and how they are useful in getting more information about the processes running in your system. System Explorer is another such tool. And it’s really good. It has number of features and options that make it a worthy alternative to the default task manager.
By using this application you can view all the tasks and running processes of your PC along with the performance. You can see how much physical memory your computer is consuming while running all the processes and all in a much better interface than the task manager.
In the screenshot given below you can clearly see the various options on the left. By clicking on any of the options you will see the results on the right side. For example, I clicked on “Tasks” button and it displayed all the tasks running on my computer. Similarly it will show results for Processes, Modules and Performances.
If you click on the Process tab, you will see all the processes running on computer along with the CPU usage. If we right click on any running process we will find more details and more options to deal with that process.
