How to Add or Remove Columns for Details in Task Manager in Windows 10


Task Manager can be used to view and manage your processes, performance statistics, app history, users, processes details, and services in Windows 10.

If you like, you can add or remove columns for details in the Processes, App history, Startup, Users, and Details tabs in Task Manager.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, Task Manager now includes 2 new columns in the “Processes” tab to show energy impact of the running process on their system. This should help our customers to understand which apps/services are using the maximum power vs. the least power-hungry apps. The metric takes CPU, GPU & Disk into evaluation when calculating power usage.
  • Power usage: This column will provide an instantaneous view of apps/services using power.
  • Power usage trend: This column provides a power usage trend over 2 mins for each running apps/services. This column will be blank when you start an app but will populate based on the power usage every 2 mins.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove columns for details in the tabs of Task Manager for your account in Windows 10.
