    Win 10 Task Manager - Startup list - numbers next to items


    I was just working with my Task Manager startup items and noticed there are several items that have numbers in parenthesis next to them. What do those numbers mean? Are those numbers telling me I need to do something, as in are they registering any sort of "alert" message?

    Thank you,

    In my startup list Skype has (2) after it. It means there are two components to that item, The main Skype program and Internet Low-Mic Utility Tool that loads with it. HTH

    Thanks! Never would have guessed in a billion times ten!

    Oh, that's interesting! I never in a billion times ten years guessed it meant that!

    This is what I see in my TM startup list:

    If you click on the arrowhead or double click on the program name it will expand to show the components.
