I know ++ is a quick way to pull up Windows Task Manager, but is there a way to do it with a desktop shortcut?

Pointing one towards C:\windows\system32\taskmgr.exe should work. Assuming C is your system drive letter, which it probably is.

Ctrl-Shift-Esc

That will bring it up the fastest. Ctrl-Esc brings up the Start Menu, just like the Win key. I've seen newer keyboards with "Start" keys.

Well, Ctrl-Shift-Esc is faster than the Ctrl-Alt-Del method. You don't have to use the mouse, with Ctrl-Shift-Esc. You do have to use the mouse for the other methods, or it will take a lot longer.

I don't like to use the Mouse for everything, the keyboard is so much faster, and so more effecient.

Now, with Photoshop, or the Gimp, I do prefer the analog abilities of a Mouse. A keyboard just doesn't cut it, for artistic applications.

Thanks for the input, I went with Truce's idea. If I'm surfing my desktop and I want to go to the Task Manager, it's easier to double-click and icon (or single-click, depending on your icon settings). Thanks again.smilie.gif
