Hi there,


I have recently installed windows 10 and am unable to load task manager when clicking on the icon on the task bar.


I need access to this facility to check if automatic update are still turned on.



Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello bluefly,

and welcome to BC. :welcome:

Did you try to press and hold the Win + X keys?

A menu should be shown close the Start button, and among the other stuff, you should see the Task Manager entry.

Once the Task Manager is opened, to see Services and other things please click on the arrow in the left lower corner.

Best way to look at update settings is to open start menu and click on settings and then Update/Security.  You will find updates are going to update automatically.  That's the way it is in 10.  You may be able to defer updates in your version, but I doubt that is a good idea.  I remember the task manager issue when I first installed 10 on a machine.  I think it just was available after running a reset and reinstall.
