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 â€œSelect Columnsâ€ and add Description, Command Line, and Image Path Name. Moreover, when you right-click a process, you can select either â€œGo to Service(s)â€ or â€œOpen File Location.â€ These are all long overdue options.
Cool! Sometimes it’s the little things that really count.
