    Open Task Manager directly to Details


    Is there a command parameter to taskmgr.exe to open directly to Details?

    I don't have answer to your question except to say that Task Manager opens the way it was closed.
    If it was closed in Details mode, it opens in Details mode.
    Does it do the same in your computer ?

    I didn't specify Windows 10, since this is "Windows 10 forums." On my computer the Win 10 Task Manager always opens to Processes. The old Task Manager does remember its closing view. There is an old task manager available for those who like it better but unfortunately it can't be installed along side of the Win 10 version, only instead. I hoped to make a shortcut to open TM directly to Details but no experiment with the command line worked.

    My task manager ALWAYS opens to the Process Tab; however, I, too, would like it to open to the Details Tab.

    I detest Windows 10. if I could easily do so, I would go back to Windows 7. I don;t want to have to reinstall all my programs again, however.

    I use Process Hacker replacement, which opens up in detailed processes, basically like Details, the view can be changed.

    Downloaded PH. Looks good; I will try it out. It doesn't exclude Task Manager, although there is an option to do so.
