A much quicker way to load the Windows 7 task manager

From time to time, when one of your programs is misbehaving, you’ll need to open the task manager to force it to quit. Many people access it by pressing CTRL+ALT+Delete and choosing “Start Task Manager” from the menu.


However, if you use Windows 7, there is a much quicker way to pull it up.


The shortcut you need to remember is CTRL+Shift+Esc. Instead of having to go through a menu, the task manager will appear automatically.
