TechTip: Ctrl-Shift-Esc for quick access to the Task Manager

Posted on 4/15/13 7:21 PM

Looking for the quickest way to the Windows Task Manager? Look no further than this keyboard shortcut.


Windows Task Manager is a useful tool to monitor your system and quit applications that are not responding. If you are using the tried-and-true Ctrl-Alt-Delete to access the Windows Task Manager, you are taking the long way there. Instead, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Esc to access the Task Manager directly.

In Windows 8, Ctrl-Alt-Delete calls up a menu, of which the Task Manager is one option. This means it's a two-step process to get to the Task Manager. With the Ctrl-Shift-Esc shortcut, you call up the Task Manager directly, giving you quicker access. It may seem like a trivial savings, but when your system is acting strangely or running slowly, any amount of effort saved to root out and shut down the offending application is beneficial.
