Displaying execution path in Windows Task Manager


I came across a handy tip recently that I thought I share.

When you use Task Manager in Windows, select the Details tab and then Right-mouse click on the headings to reveal the menu as shown above. From this menu choose Select Columns.


Scroll down the list of columns that appears and select:

Image path name


Command line

as shown above, then select OK.


As shown above, you should now see a column that displays the path to the executable for that task as well as a column showing the actual command line options required to run that task. This is a very handy option when you are troubleshooting tasks.
