Quick path to open task manager CTRL+SHIFT+ESC


When I press CTL + ALT + DEL on my IdeaPad Z565 running Windows 7, I'm taken to a blue screen with a bunch of options. One of them includes choosing the task manager.

How do I make it so when I press CTL + ALT + DEL, I'm automatically taken to the task manager?

Basically, I want the task manager to open instead of the blue screen.



Press the  Ctrl+Shift+Escape keys together and the task manager will directly open to the processes tab.  You can then click the applications tab if desired to swtich to or end specific tasks.
