Where can you get application memory utilization information?

You’re running a new application on your computer, and you’re concerned that the application may be using more RAM than you were expecting. Which utility can provide you with real-time memory utilization information?

A) Device Manager

B) Task Manager

C) Windows Registry

D) Event Viewer

The answer: B) Task Manager

The Task Manager is a fantastic real-time resource of memory use, CPU utilization, application activity, and many other real-time statistics. You can also start and stop applications from the Task Manager. You can start the Task Manager by right-clicking in an empty area of the taskbar, and select Task Manager. You can also type Ctrl+Alt+Delete and choose Task Manager, or (my favorite) use the shortcut of Ctrl-Shift-Esc.
