    Note This tutorial is no longer valid.

    The set default tab feature is enabled by default now in Task Manager.

    *Arrow Set Default Tab for Task Manager in Windows 10



    Task Manager can be used to view and manage your processes, performance statistics, app history, users, processes details, and services in Windows 10.

    Starting with Windows Insiders, as a part of A/B testing, can now set a preferred tab to have Task Manager open to by default.

    If you were included in this A/B testing, then you are already good to go to use the set default tab feature in Task Manager.

    If you were not included in this A/B testing, then you can use Mach2 by Rafael Rivera to enable the "Set default tab" feature in Task Manager.

    Mach2 manages the Windows Feature Store, where Features (and associated on/off state) live. This store lives in the undocumented Windows Notification Facililty (WNF), which provides publish-subscribe messaging for kernel components, system services, and user-space applications. Windows currently contains thousands of Feature switches that turn on and off new and unfinished functionality, mitigations, test hooks, and overrides. Mach2 provides facilities to discover these switches and turn them on or off.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable the new Set default tab feature in Task Manager for all users in Windows 10.

    *Warning You must be signed in as an administrator to enable this feature with Mach2.

    *note This will not work on the Windows 10 Enterprise edition.

    Warning It is recommended that you system image before enabling the experimental Set default tab feature in Task Manager.

    This way if forcing to enable this feature causes any issues on your system, you will be able to easily undo it.



    EXAMPLE: "Set default tab" feature in Task Manager

    7. Open an elevated command prompt.

    8. Press Ctrl+V to paste the full path of the mach2.exe file from step 6 into the elevated command prompt. (see screenshot below step 9)

    9. Add a space after the full path, type enable 19349505, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    For example: "C:\Users\Brink\Desktop\mach2_0.3.0.0_x64\mach2.exe" enable 19349505

    10. Open Set default tab feature.

    11. If you like, you can now delete the mach2_0.3.0.0_x64.zip file and mach2_0.3.0.0_x64 folder on your desktop.

    Windows 10 Task Manager to Get GPU Utilization Tab

    Microsoft is working on an update to Windows 10, which among several other things, adds a GPU utilization tab to Task Manager. You will be able to monitor each individual GPU in your machine, and Task Manager will give you live utilization stats for the GPU's 3D load, Video hardware-acceleration (encode/decode) load, dedicated memory usage, shared memory usage, and basic driver information such as driver version and date. For now the update is part of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16226; and will make it to the main-release in the coming months.
