Microsoft is now rolling out the new Task Manager for Gaming on Windows 10

Microsoft is adding a Task Manager widget within the Xbox Game Bar to help you manage your Windows 10 computer’s resources without leaving a game. It was known that the new ‘Resources’ widget lets you monitor which programs are causing the most strain on your computer, assess why your in-game performance may be hitching, and close programs quickly without tabbing out.

In addition, the users will also be able to see how much load there is on your CPU, RAM, DISK, and GPU, much like the traditional Task Manager application. It’s a neat timesaver that means you won’t have to alt-tab or hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE so often to figure out your in-game issues. This new modern Task Manager for Windows 10 is built right into the Xbox Game Bar and it’s designed to work with both games and your apps, including Google Chrome or Edge.

Note that the update is only rolling out to select users in the production channels of Windows 10, such as the version 2004, version 1909, or version 1903. It appears to be a gradual rollout and not everyone is receiving the update, so you can most likely expect to see it by November. However, You can get access to the feature right now by enrolling in the Game Bar – SDK Development app within the Xbox Insider Hub on Windows 10.

The Xbox Insider Hub allows Windows and Xbox users to preview new features ahead of their official launch. If you choose the potentially less stable preview of the Xbox Game Bar, after an update you’ll be able to find the new Task Manager app by clicking the ‘widgets’ hamburger symbol in the top bar after pressing Windows Key + G to initiate the overlay. It’s not yet clear when the feature will be rolled out to all users.
