    Task Manager

    What happens when I click on Task Manager/View/Update Speed/and set it to
    High? It was set to Normal. Are there any adverse affects by changing it to
    High? Why would I not want it to be set to High? Does it adversely affect
    graphics resolution?

    Re: Task Manager

    Hi James,

    Setting this option to high will have the information displayed in the Task Manager to be updated in real time instead of the other options (every so often). On high it will use more of your available resources to keep it updated more often. Depending on how fast your computer is, you may or may not notice the extra use of these resources.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi James,
    As far as I know it just increases the update of the data (to get it more
    often).
    I'm not sure why you would need it faster. If you do set it at the high
    rate, it will use more system resources, thats all.
