    settings default tabs for task manager in windows 8


    this maybe fall under customization but here goes. as title suggest I'd like to be able to set default tabs for when i open task manager in windows 8. when i open task manager, default is process and i'd like to change that to details. I almost don't use process and I always find myself jumping to details and services, is there anyway to do this?

    thank you for your time.

    HI m18xr2,

    Just for the record, I do not know how to do this or know if it is even practically possible; however, I will monitor this thread as well to see if any other forum member comes up with a solution.
