    Closing programs

    With windows xp you only needed to ctrl-alt-del to view running programs and
    close them, before installing new software. How do you close programs for xp?

    Hi Tyrone,

    Did you mean in Vista?

    If so, you can press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager to close non-responding programs. You can see more on this in this tutorial if needed.

    Task Manager - Open and Close Applications and Processes

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    That doesnt neccessarily show all running programs, unless you are also
    refering to 'running processes'
    Simply close those that show in your task bar, generally by rt clicking on
    them to bring up the context menu
