SterJo Task Manager is a simple freeware process manager for Windows. At first look, it seems to be virtually like Windows’ built-in utility.
The program’s interface lists 4 tabs: Processes, Registry, Services and Connections
“Processes” lists all working packages in your laptop. You get the Process ID, CPU utilization, examine the folder location of the executable, process precedence, and the model variety of every utility that is listed. The Task Manager additionally shows the identify of the process’ proprietor, i.e. which utility began the process, and the identify of the corporate that developed the packages. Right-click on a process to kill the process, or to set its precedence.
There are two choices which are frequent throughout all tabs: File Properties and Search Online. The file’s properties menu merchandise opens Windows’ properties dialog for a chosen process. The “search on-line” choice opens a new browser tab and appears up the identify of the duty utilizing the Google search engine.
The toolbar on the prime of the Processes tab can be utilized to refresh the listing, open a new process, finish a process or view the properties. The small tab under the pane shows a chosen process’ identify, icon, description, file dimension, and tells you whether or not it is digitally signed or not. The standing bar on the backside shows the full variety of working processes, CPU utilization, reminiscence utilization and the quantity of accessible free reminiscence.
The Registry tab in SterJo Task Manager lists all Registry gadgets which are set to run at boot and shortcuts within the startup folder. Use the context menu or the toolbar on the prime to edit, allow/disable, or delete a chosen merchandise. You can also execute an merchandise to run this system immediately.
The Services Tab shows all companies out there in Windows, their identify, path, and a few extra data. It lets you Pause, Resume, Stop or Start a chosen service. The delete choice can be utilized to take away a service, I might advise warning whereas utilizing this. You ought to allow the “Don’t present Microsoft Services” choice, so you do not tinker with any system associated companies. The tab will also be used for altering the start-up sort for every service, i.e., whether or not it ought to routinely begin, or manually or if it needs to be disabled.
The Connections tab is my favourite function in this system. As the identify suggests, it shows the community connections made by every program and repair in your laptop. This consists of the file identify, the protocol used to attach, the native deal with, port, distant IP deal with, distant port, and the total path of the executable. This additionally consists of the standing of the connection, i.e., whether or not it has been established or if this system is listening (normally on the native port).
The right-click menu can be utilized to terminate a connection, finish a process or resolve the host IP deal with. That’s very helpful in case you wish to see which server a program is attempting to connect with. And in the event you discover something suspicious, you possibly can block it utilizing a Firewall.
When minimized, this system sits on the system tray. SterJo Task Manager is additionally out there in a moveable archive. The program runs on Windows XP and above.
It could not have the options of superior process managers like Process Explorer, however SterJo Task Manager is nonetheless approach higher than the default Windows Task Manager. I might have preferred an choice to open the file location immediately, however the Path and File properties choices exist, so there’s that.
