A very accessible user interface and detailed user guidance and information are the hallmarks of this system utility that serves as an alternative to Windows' Task Manager.

MKN TaskExplorer opens with a nicely laid out user interface. At the top, you'll find command buttons for managing processes. The main window also displays CPU usage and memory usage. When we clicked on a specific process, the program displayed its detailed information, including a performance graph. Terminating and pausing processes was as easy as selecting the specific process and right-clicking. The program comes with a Memory Monitor that let us keep track of our memory usage at a glance. And in the same way, we were able to view our system's performance using the Performance Monitor. A helpful usage graph pops up whenever you hover the mouse over the taskbar icon. If you want to replace your Windows' Task Manager with TaskExplorer, simply click the check box under the Options menu.

MKN has an extensive Help feature should you need it, but users of all levels will appreciate the way the program lays everything out in plain view. Though it left a shortcut in our Start Menu after we uninstalled it, we still recommend this effective, easy-to-use tool for monitoring your system's processes.
