    Can I get Task Manager back as a right-click option in Windows 11?


    One thing I don't like in Windows 11 is I cannot right-click the Taskbar to launch Task Manager. Is there a way to reinstate this? I do know I can search for Task Manager on the Start button, or use Ctrl-Shift-ESC, but I would like to use right-click on the taskbar, it was a great feature of Windows 10.

    :)

    No restart button in task manager

    another easy way to kill tasks, download and install Winaero Tweaker(free) and theres a setting to add a Kill non responding tasks using the desktop right click menu. When you place your cursor on the desktop anywhere and right click the option is at the top of the list, Very handy and you dont have to go through all those steps and well Winaero Tweaker has alot of cool Windows tweaks. Just posting a different suggestion, Im sure your ok with what was suggested here.

    Task Manager - Startup tab

    Actually, I like your suggestion as a first step.

    Unchecking the wrong thing in Autoruns can brick a system.
