I hate the BSODs.yes, this is really it (Click to show)
Also, if you abruptly close the Task Manager (kill the process, lose power while it's open, etc), it loses it's settings and restores to default.
That happens because when you actually open
it, it reads its settings from the Registry and then deletes them
. When you close it the regular way, the settings are being re-written back into the registry.
I have no idea why they designed it this way...
Anyhow, here's a fix:
- Open taskmgr and set the settings you like
- Close it
- super+R -> regedit -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TaskManager
- Export into a .reg file which you can simply run and append if you lose you settings.
I flip out when this happens because I watch data like CPU Time, I/O Read Bytes, etc. Plus, I have it bigger and the columns rearranged, with many of them hidden.
I can come up with more, but they are avoidable in many ways.
Like, for example, the libraries being shown in 'Computer' which is fixable with a simple registry edit.
