Process Info With Vista

One little annoyance that has always bugged me about XP and previous versions of NT – the process viewer never provided the full path to the actual application. Reading over some “power user/geek” Vista tips on Chris Prillo’s blog, he mentions that Microsoft added this to Vista.

The Windows Task Manager gives you a lot more troubleshooting information in Vista. Flip to the Processes tab, and in the View menu, click “Select Columns” and add Description, Command Line, and Image Path Name. Moreover, when you right-click a process, you can select either “Go to Service(s)” or “Open File Location.” These are all long overdue options.

Cool! Sometimes it’s the little things that really count.
