How to Open Task Manager on Mac?

- Advertisement -

MacOS has a feature with functionality which is similar to that of Windows Task Manager. Windows users know the usefulness of bringing up the Task Manager. It displays a running process, those which are ignorable, those which are eating up the RAM, those that have unlimited access to the network.

One can use the Task Manager to end several processes or start a new one. MacOS has a similar feature which is called Activity Monitor, and if you are moving from Windows to Mac, you might not be aware of how to access the Activity Monitor. So, if you’re a fresh user or you don’t know what to do about your MacBook’s speed, this article is for you.

The Apple Mac has Spotlight, which is its built-in search feature. Spotlight searches for apps, documents, files on your Mac. To use the Spotlight feature, press CMD + Space. You will get a search box, within it, you are required to type in “Activity Monitor.” Press Return and almost immediately, the Activity Monitor windows will appear.

Another way you can open it is to go to the dock. This is done by clicking on the Launchpad icon, and you will get access to a list of apps. Click on ‘Other’, and you will be able to see Activity Monitor. Furthermore, open Finder and scroll to Applications. Within the Utilities section, you will see the icon for the Task Manager.

Keep in Dock

However, most Mac users understand that the Dock holds the list of all your favourite apps. The apps you use most can be kept in the Dock. Once the Activity Monitor is open, you can right click on the icon. A menu tray will appear, select Options and you will get a drop-down menu. Click on “Keep in Dock.” After which the icon is glued to the Dock until you wish to discard it.

Mac’s equivalent of the Window Task Manager does everything that one would expect out of a monitor. The status is each application and is divided into Memory, Network, CPU, Energy, and Disk. These tabs are seen at the top just close to the settings icon. By visiting each tab, you will be able to see the list of all the active processes and how much memory or energy or disk space they are consuming.

This data does not help the user that much. If your PC is running sluggishly, it makes sense to shut down the applications that are running, but there might be other processes running in the background which you cannot see. Therefore, bringing out the Activity Monitor will help you to identify the exact process that is consuming your system’s RAM or CPU.

It is also helpful for those with an eye for controlling, managing and recording the data. Allowed access to the workings of each process will enable you to improve the battery life of your computer and also help to weed out those applications with too much Network access and check for redundancies.
