The quickest way to bring up Task Manager (the old Ctrl+Alt+Delete) is to right click an open area of the Task Bar and chose Task Manager from the menu that appears.

For those of us that are a bit fumble-fingered or have to search around for all three keys that have to be pressed simultaneously. Aren't right clicks wonderful? :thumbsup: Keyboards may be for the geek, but right clicking is for the meek. As in mouse. :flowers:

This works for XP. Don't know about other OS's.

We always did feel the same

:thumbsup: Hi Papakid,
LOL! I am in the habit of control/alt/delete. It started when I had Windows 98. I know about that tip, but by the time I remember it, I've already pressed control/alt/delete.
:trumpet: I'll try to keep it in mind it. I love the right click and try to right click anything I come across to see what I can do. It's a good thing :flowers:
