Windows programs run as one or more processes or tasks. You can use the TASKLIST command to display a list of currently-running tasks. TASKLIST displays the process ID number for each running task, the name of the executable program that started the task, and, when available, the window title. You can also optionally display the process priority, the modules (dll's) loaded by that process, the startup command line, the memory usage, the class name of the main window of the process, and the cpu usage.
If name begins with a =, it is assumed to be a process ID instead of a process name or window title.
TASKLIST will display a * after the process ID of the current process.
You can limit the output of TASKLIST by specifying the task name that you wish to see. The name can contain wildcards and extended wildcards.
|/=||Display the TASKLIST command dialog to help you set the command line options. You cannot specify any other arguments on the command line.|
