Open File Location in Task Manager

Curiosity usually gets the best of me, and in the realm of computers that’s especially true. Say, for example, when my computer’s running extra slow – I usually open up Task Manager to see what’s up. I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete, Ctrl+Shift+Esc or right-click on my task bar to start the Task Manager, and in seconds I’m looking at what’s gobbling up my precious processing power.

So, I know what’s eating up my resources, but where’s the culprit hiding, exactly?

Well, in Windows 7 or Vista, that’s pretty easy to find out! Make sure you’re under the Processes tab in Task manager and right-click the Image name in question. Select Open File Location.

If there is indeed a location you can access, an Explorer window will pop up and show you the location of said file!

Neat! That oughta sate my curiosity for awhile!
