I have a W520 and am running Windows 7 on it. The Task Manager does not show a PID (Process ID). The Task Manager also does not have a menu but just shows the display.
The Task Manager does not display Menu options when it is set in 'Small Footprint' mode.
To change your settings,
how can we improve it?

<p>Today during a rush to shut down, I used the Task Manager to shut down a couple "sticky" programs that didn't want to close up for me. The strangest thing happened, I don't know if I hit a "hot key" that put me on preferences, but a weird thing happened: It had me go through all the tabs and make setting adjustments. I didn't change anything much, but wound up looking at the CPA usage charts that took up the whole default page. The next time I opened the Task Manager, it was on CPA usage page with the 4-core (Intel -i5) areas and without any kind of controls to move it back to the normal default setting. Anybody know how to get that "default" setting back when starting back up? Like I said, there are no other controls or menu items I can get off the CPU grids with. I went in the bio's but don't know enough to mess with it, I just got out without any changing settings or anything else.</p><blockquote><hr>Serene_Lenovo wrote:<br><div class="lia-message-template-question-zone"> Question<p>I have a W520 and am running Windows 7 on it.

Wouldn't you know it! I'm real happy I listened to an aquantence at school. Lenovo popped up just as soon as I entered my problem, and 1,2-3, I did as it said and my task manager is back in business, with the problem gone.
