    Scheduled Tasks - Task Manager at logon but how get Performance tab?

    I already have a Scheduled Task that starts Task Manager at every logon. But it always starts in the "Processes" tab. How can I make it start in the "Performance" tab? See screenshot:

    I see it never looks at any parameters when you execute it so I would guess that it doesn't look at them, even though there is a discussion about parameters here -> command line - taskmgr.exe called with an argument by Windows 7 - Super User

    You could probably achieve that with an autohotkey script which clicks the relevant tab. However, it doesn't look possible to identify the tab explicitly, so you'd have to do that purely on a geometric basis. Not ideal.

    A hint here, but not desirable:
    +1 - An ugly hack would be to change the last active tab through the registry in HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/TaskManager – Cheuk Kin Sing Aug 8 '11 at 19:09
