I see process ID's after my running programs. Would the same process running on a different computer have the same "PID"? Also how would I find information on a program on my computer with the PID? What are they for anyway? THX

Process ID's are simply an identification number assigned to a running program that the operating system references when it wants to interact with that program in some manner.

The process ids have nothing to do with the programs themselves to if you ran notepad on here and notepad on another computer, each of them could have different process ids.
