Do you, as I, miss the old Task Manager that was replaced in Windows 8 and Later? How about MSConfig? I have mainly missed MSConfig but no longer.

Many such "classic" features are still available just needing to be enabled. Thanks to the "classic" MSConfig my system is now running with less system resources being used.

The following link will take you to a download site put up by Winaero Tweaker, my favorite Windows 10 tweaking package. The download, when executed, will re-enable the old Task Manager and MSConfig that was last seen in Windows 7. Since there are other download links on the page make sure to use the one just above the installation screen shots.

Please remember that disabling the wrong thing can cause harm. If you don't exactly know what something is ask.

Jay I confused by this topic. I guess I haven't paid attention to any changes to the two system tools you mentioned. I haven't used the resource your mentioning. They still look the same to me. What am I missing from their appearance and functionality? I'm running Win 10 Pro - V1903.

The reference to Task Manager and MSConfig classic would be to Windows 7 and earlier. The utility provides a way to use those interfaces. Personally, I see no reason to do that as functionality in Task Manager in Windows 10 is vastly improved over the "classic" interface.

As to Task Manager I agree the the one in Windows 10 is fine. I just happen to like MSConfig.
