A new leaked screenshot- The Windows 8 task manager with the TaskUI enabled:
Bigger screenshot after the break.
Let’s take a look at the bigger screenshot:
The task manager is using the so called TaskUI, basically a new UI for the task manager.
On the screenshot you a more tidy version of the Windows task manager. At the top we have the tabs “Programs”, “Startup”, and “Users”. You can, similar to the Windows 7 task manager, start a new task within the task manager.
Tidy UI: TaskUI
The actual task manager is divided into three collapsable menus: Windows System-Critical Programs, Background Programs and Applications.
Looks like Microsoft realized that not all people know what services are system-critical. Also, it’s so much more tidy than the old one.
Obviously, it’s not finished and missing the tabs “Processes”, “Services”, “Performance” and “Networking”, but I suppose this is only a very early version of this “modern” task manager, possibly only a test build anyway. I’m already looking forward to using this task manager in the finished Windows 8.
