Vista: Find the program running a process

March 19, 2009

Here’s a neat Task Manager trick in Vista — you can find the location of a particular process and see what program is running it.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del then select Start Task Manager.
  2. Go to the Processes tab.
  3. Right-click on a running process, then select Open File Location. This will show where the process has come from and typically what program is running it.
