This article explains how to add or remove columns in the Task Manager app in Windows 11.

Task Manager app has been part of Windows since early Windows NT 4.0 / 2000, allowing users to view tasks (processes), startup programs, services, and the computer’s overall performance.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, the Task Manager app has been redesigned to match the new Windows 11 design principles.

The new design includes a new hamburger-style navigation bar and settings page. In addition, a new command bar on each page gives access to everyday actions. It also adds a dark theme to the Task Manager and automatically matches the system-wide theme configured in the Settings app.
