    How To Select The 'Details' Tab Initially In Task Manager


    Hello, so the topic title is pretty much self explanatory. When I open the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), it opens to the Processes tab initially. The thing is that I don't use this tab at all; I click on the Details tab, since I'm more familiar with that. I would like to automatically open the Details tab every time I open the Task Manager. How can I do that? Also, rearranging those tabs would be perfect, if possible!


    Thanks

    I know that taskmgr /0 /startup in a Run box or as a shortcut will open Task Manager to Startup tab, maybe there's an iteration of that for the Details tab but I haven't found it!

    Okay thanks for that reply.

    I want to keep it simple though. I don't want some command that diverts away from pressing CTRL+Shift+ESC for the Task Manager; Whenever I press CTRL+Shift+ESC, I want to see the Details tab initially.

    You should use a better task manager, not only it opens as you want, but you can customize it as much as you want.

    Process Hacker or Process Explorer

    Cool, I'll keep those in mind. I've tried them both, but this would take a lot of time to try to adjust to. They're more in depth which is nice. I'll keep messing around with Process Hacker (I have it to start up instead of Task Manager with CTRL+Shift+ESC). I'll try it for the next few weeks or whatnot, but still, if anyone knows how to set the Details tab to show first, please tell me about it! =)
