Task Manager how to anchor it at startup or minimize it next to the clock


Steps to follow to anchor the Windows 10 Task Manager in the taskbar or start menu and minimize it in the system tray

The Windows 10 Task Manager is one of the tools most used by most users of the system every day. So much so, that many users the first thing they do just turn on the PC is to open the tool to always have it at hand and to see if any process is using more resources than normal and can penalize the performance of the computer. Next, we are going to show how to anchor the Task Manager to the start menu, the taskbar and how to minimize it by going to the system tray .

In this way, we will be able to have the tool always at hand with one click and be able to track the running processes, CPU, memory and other resources of the equipment.

Steps to follow to anchor the Task Manager in the Start menu or the Windows 10 taskbar

If we want to fix the Task Manager in the system taskbar itself as we can do with our favorite programs, the first thing we have to do is open the Windows 10 tool. To do this, just press the key combination Ctrl + Alt + Delete. and click on the option that allows us to open the administrator.

Once opened on our desktop, we right click on the administrator icon that appears in the taskbar and only we can choose the option Pin to the taskbar that is shown in the context menu.

If we want to anchor the access in the Windows 10 start menu, so what we are going to do is open the folder where the Task Manager itself is located, C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Start Menu \ Programs \ System Tools , we click on the shortcut with the right mouse button and we select the option Anchor to Start.

For both options, we have another quick enough option to anchor the access to the administrator in the Start or in the system taskbar. In the search box of the taskbar we write Task Manager and we will be shown directly the options of anchoring to start or to the bar from the search result.

How to make the Task Manager go to the system tray to minimize it

If on the contrary, what we do not want is that the Windows administrator takes up space in the taskbar, what we can do is minimize it in the system tray . To do this, we open the tool and once we have the administrator window in front of us, we click on the menu option Options .

There we will find two options that interest us, Minimize when opening and Hide when minimized . The first one causes that when we open the Task Manager it will be minimized automatically, while the second one will also cause it not to be shown in the taskbar and hidden in the system tray. Therefore, we must mark these options to our liking so that it has the behavior we want.
