    Re: Cannot open Task Manager in my Windows 8 System

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    1.As Windows 8 is different from other Windows OS so the shortcut keys are different.

    2.Press 'Ctrl + Shift + Esc'.

    3.Now the task manager will open in your windows 8 system.

    Or

    1.You just move your mouse cursor to the bottom of your screen near to the taskbar.

    2.Then you make a right click on the taskbar.

    3.Then you click on 'Task Manager' to open it.

    Have a nice day...................

    Re: Cannot open Task Manager in my Windows 8 System

    Dear Guest,
    Your task manager is not opening you can simply right click on your windows and open it or you can press ctrl + alt + del, ctrl + shift + esc.
    IF then also it is not opening then it might have been disabled for enabling it again you have to follow these steps :-
    1. Open run with windows + r
    2. now type "gpedit.msc"
    3. Open the folder "user configuration"
    4. Double click and open "administrative templates"
    5. Now open "system" folder
    6. now at the top open the folder ctrl +alt + del
    7. now open "remove task manager"
    8. click on disable and hit ok
    Thank you, it will be enabled
