    Task Manager (Windows XP & 98)

    How do you locate the Task Manager in Windows XP and Windows 98 and/or is it available in those versions?

    W98 was too long ago for me to even remember if it had TM, but with XP either:

    Ctrl_Alt_Del and select Task Manager
    or
    Right_Mouse on TaskBar and select Task Manager.

    Windows 98 SE (at least) doesn't really have a concept of "Task Manager", in the NT4/W2K/WXP sense.

    All that Ctrl+Alt+Del gives you is a list of running tasks in a window with title "Close program", and the available buttons are: End Task, Shutdown and Cancel.

    You could try TaskInfo. It's probably overkill, compared to task manager, and shareware. But it does the job (in both w98 & XP), and a heap more besides.
