    How to Set Default Tab for Task Manager in Windows 10


    Task Manager can be used to view and manage your processes, performance statistics, app history, users, processes details, and services in Windows 10.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18305, some Windows Insiders, as a part of A/B testing, can now set a preferred tab to have Task Manager open to by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to set a default Task Manager tab you prefer to immediately switch to when opening Task Manager for your account in Windows 10.


     CONTENTS:

    • Option One: Set Default Tab for Task Manager in Task Manager
    • Option Two: Set Default Tab for Task Manager using a REG file

    Hello Jack,

    It appears that not everyone on 18305 has this setting yet despite what's in the release notes.
