The integrated task manager in Windows is an easy way to manage programs and services. But so far this tool has always been associated with the system.
The unofficial UWP app is published by Microsoft employee Andrew Whitechapel, a former program manager for the Windows Phone team. In the days of Windows Phone, he was responsible for letting developers work on applications for the mobile platform.
Today, he is part of another team and in his spare time working on UWP applications for Windows 10. His latest application is task manager, an alternative task manager.
uTaskManager: App uses the Windows 10 diagnostic APIs
The uTaskManager uses the diagnostic interfaces of Windows 10 and therefore has numerous functions that the normal task manager also brings with it. There are various tabs that provide the user with information about the currently running processes and applications. In addition, system information and an overview with all installed programs can be displayed. However, there is still no visual representation of which resources are currently being used. It also doesn’t seem to be possible to exit applications. The app can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.
Why Andrew Whitechapel developed the app remains unclear.
The usual task manager is still tied to Windows 10. In order to outsource the component as an application, Microsoft will have to make changes to its operating system.
Therefore, uTaskManager cannot replace the existing task manager. If Redmond actually plans to outsource the system components, the task manager should be rebuilt within the company and may no longer be based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which has been abandoned for some time.
