    Anyone notice that in Win2000, task manager display a graph of physical
    memory usage, in XP it was changed to page file usage and Win7 back to
    physical memory. Don't know about vista since I never really messed with it.

    FYI: In Win7's task manager's "Performance" tab, click the "resource
    monitor" button for lots more real-time info and graphs. to flip through.

    Is there a way to create a desktop shortcut for Task Manager? Dragging
    it from Start does not work.

    Right click task bar select Start task manager will be just as quick and can
    be done when an open window hids the Desktop

    Ctrl-Shift-Esc works here. It's the standard shortcut.

    I learned about it on one of the Windows newsgroups :)

    How about CTRL - SHIFT - ESC on your keyboard.
    No need to click anything.
