How to Use Chrome’s Built-In Task Manager

Task Manager

Most operating systems have a built-in task manager or resource monitor that lets you see all active processes and programs running on your computer. The Chrome web browser also has one that helps you end troublesome tabs and extensions.

Open Chrome’s Task Manager

To open Chrome’s Task Manager, click the “More” button (three dots), hover over “More Tools,” and then click on “Task Manager.” Alternatively, press Shift+Esc on Windows or Search+Esc on Chrome OS to open Task Manager.

Click the three dots, hover the mouse over "More Tools," and then click on "Task Manager" to open Task Manager.

With Chrome’s Task Manager now open, you can see a list of all tabs, extensions, and processes currently running in the browser.

When Task Manager opens, a list of all the tabs, extensions, and processes currently running in Chrome appear in the list.

End Troublesome Processes

You can end any of the processes from this menu, which can be helpful when an extension or tab stops responding. To do this, click on the process and then select “End Process.”

Click on a process, and then click "End Process" to kill the process.

You can kill more than one process at a time by holding down the Shift or Ctrl key (Command on Mac), highlighting multiple items from the list, and then hitting the “End Process” button.
