Configuring through Task Manager

Task Manager is a built-in service responsible for monitoring computer processes and resources. You can run it through a combination of buttons CtrlShift and Esc or click on the free space in the PCM software panel and select the appropriate item.


Most likely, the service will open in a reduced version. You can understand this by the presence of the “Details” button at the bottom of the window. If this is present, click on it, it is also advisable to enable full-screen display. Otherwise, skip this step.

As a name, enter the name of the program (this is unprincipled, just for ease of designation), and then specify the location of the executable file in the value box.

To do this, click PCM on the current folder and select the last item from the context menu. There you can edit the list in exactly the same way.

Particular attention should be paid to the utility library section. Various system components are listed there, as well as the conditions for their launch, for example, logging in. The library will be able not only to edit at its discretion, but also to supplement with new tasks.
