How do I use task manager to optimize my system’s resources?

1. Check the performance tab: The Performance tab provides information on CPU and memory usage, as well as showing which processes are using up the most resources. It can help you assess exactly which components are straining your system’s resources.

2. End unnecessary processes: If a process is taking up more resources than you need it to, you can right-click the process in the Processes tab and select “End Task” to stop it.

3. Adjust the priority of processes: In the Details tab, you can right-click a process and adjust its priority. Higher priority processes will be given more resources than lower priority processes, so you can prioritize the more important processes.

4. Set up start-up items: If you have a lot of applications that launch on start-up, this can bog down your computer’s resources. By using the Task Manager, you can check which programs are launching on your computer and disable them if you don’t need them automatically launching.

5. Maximize resources with Services: The Services tab allows you to control the Windows services running on your computer. You can disable unnecessary services that are taking up system resources.
