How can I find out which apps are running in the background in Windows 10?

In Windows 10, users have the ability to view which apps are running in the background. This can be done through the Task Manager. The Task Manager allows users to view the applications, background processes, and services that are running on their PC.

The Task Manager can be accessed by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting “Task Manager” from the context menu. Alternatively, you can press the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously to bring up the Task Manager. Once the Task Manager has been opened, you will be able to view the list of programs and services that are currently running on your computer.

The Task Manager also provides a detailed breakdown of each application or process that is running in the background. For example, it will show you how much CPU and Memory resources each application or process is consuming. Additionally, it will also provide information about the network activity, disk usage, and other metrics associated with the background tasks.

If you wish to end a background task, simply select it in the Task Manager and click on the “End Task” button. If you want to get more detailed information about a specific process, you can right-click on it and select “Go to details”. This will open the Details tab in the Task Manager which provides additional information about the process such as the location of the executable file, its process ID, and other details.

Alternatively, you can also use the Windows Settings app to view the list of apps that are running in the background. To access the list, open the Start Menu and select “Settings”. On the left side of the window, select “Privacy,” then scroll down and select “Background apps.” This will show you the list of apps that are allowed to run in the background. You can toggle the switch for each app to disable or enable background activity for that particular app.

In summary, users can view which apps are running in the background in Windows 10 by accessing the Task Manager or the Windows Settings app. The Task Manager provides information about the CPU, memory and other resources used by applications while the Windows Settings app gives users the ability to control which apps are allowed to run in the background.
