Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing that we need to do is launch the Task Manager.
    There are a lot of ways to do this. One of the easiest ways is to right-click on an empty space on the taskbar and click "Task Manager". When the Task Manager window opens, there will be a list of apps that are currently launched. In this case, the apps are Calendar, Camtasia Recorder, Camtasia Studio, Crossword Fun, and so on.
