Task manager is not showing anywhere

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


It seems that my task manager has vanished from the chart.

I used to get it by pressing (Ctrl+Alt+Del) configuration or by right clicking on the task bar.

Now none of them are showing it, and I do not how to get it with any other process either.

Should someone know about this problem please help me solve this.

Bruce Norway.

your problem with task manager is not so much difficult. try these solutions.

solution no 1#

task manager usually remembers its last positions and reappears in that position if you press alt+cltr+del. I guess it is appearing, but your resolutions is not high, so you can not see.

So make high resolutions and it will appear then.

solution no 2#

at first double click on any side of the actual border of the window.Then there the tabs should show up.

solution no 3#

restart your computer

solution no 4#

reinstall windows

solution no 5#

run > gpedit.msc > enable task manager

Hope this helps you

Problem solved! Thanks,  

Tunacao_Caaron1.  I followed your method 2.

I run regedit and go to  HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software Microsoft > Windows> CurrentVersion > Policies> System.

Simply, delete Disable TaskMgr.

Reboot the system.

Done! To be sure I performed a full system scan using avast, it seems that a virus caused the problem.
