When you open Windows Task Manager and go to the Processes tab, there is a great deal of information available to you about the items currently running on your system. In addition to the default columns which are displayed you can view lots of other information by going to View > Select Columns. However, if you want to know what the values in these column actually mean, here is a table on Microsoft’s site which explains each.
While many of the columns are obvious, you may be curious, for example, about what each of the memory values mean. This is very valuable information to know if you want to get a bit more insight into your system without getting into very advanced tools.
