Whenever you want to view real-time information about running processes and applications in the Windows operating system, you can just access the Task Manager utility. The problem is that this application is very limited and doesn't offer all the information desired by the user and it cannot detect all running processes.

A much better program for displaying information about running processes and applications is Process Explorer. As the name states, this program is able to detect and display all running processes and can also show various information about each of them.

The application doesn't need installing and can be run directly from the EXE file. When running the program, it will instantly show all running processes, together with various information, like the CPU and RAM usage, the PID number and also a short description, for allowing the user to know what the process is about. With a single click, one can kill any process, even the ones which normally cannot be stopped using the Windows Task Manager.

Process Explorer also includes a tool which allows you to focus on any running application, for detecting its process. This feature is useful for applications which constantly crash or hang-up, but their processes remain active.

The program also includes a search feature, which allows you to find DLL files which belong to running processes. Another useful feature is the System Information window, which can show real-time information about the CPU, RAM and network usage.


It can display all running processes and tasks, together with detailed information about each of them. Besides that, it includes a System Information feature, which can display real-time information about CPU, memory and network usage. Furthermore, the focus option can display the corresponding process for each open application window.


Some information about running processes may be more difficult to understand by first-time computer users. Process Explorer allows you to display detailed information about every running process and application and also find the corresponding DLL files for each of them.
