You can use Task Manager to display a list of the programs that are currently running on your computer. If a program seems frozen, or does not appear to be responding, use Task Manager to view the status of the program.
Open Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar and then clicking Task Manager.
Click the Applications tab to see a list of all the programs that are currently running on your computer and each program's status (either Running or Not Responding).
If a program is not responding and you want to close the program, click the program, and then click End Task. Any unsaved changes made using the program will be lost.
