Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 task manager for gamers. Earlier, this month Xbox Insider started testing a new feature ‘Resources Monitor‘. And now in less than three weeks, the feature is finally rolling out for non-insiders. All the non-insiders must update Xbox Game Bar from the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft Released New Task Manager For Windows 10
The new Windows 10 Task Manager is built in the Xbox Game Bar and it works with both games and apps, even with Google Chrome or Edge. However, the update is out for selected users in the production channels of Windows 10 like version 2004, version 1909 or version 1903.
As of now, not everyone is receiving the update, so we can expect to see it for everyone by November.
In the above-shown picture, you can see Windows 10 modern resources monitor tool in the Xbox Game Bar’s new menu and store.
On the homepage of the Xbox Game Bar Resources widget, you will find a list of programs running in the background and the usage of the system. It lets you monitor the resources programs which might run in the background and affect the performance of the game.
You can end the process by clicking on the cross button. But remember that if you end the process you might lose all the unsaved data and also the game-associated processes will crash the game.
You can open the resources screen without leaving a game by pressing Win + G and monitor the running processes.
The Windows Task Manager lets you monitor apps, services, and processes that are running on your desktop. You can use the task manager to stop programs but it doesn’t work properly every time when you try to use it while your game or an app is going on.
But, now with the help of this new modern task manager, you can easily access the processes. You can access the statistics without leaving or crashing a game.
