    He meant in task manager.

    Open task manger switch into performance tab and in lower left there is a button to open resource monitor.

    Right, I think I mentioned that.

    (the button can also be found in the performance tab).

    Perfmon.exe found in "C:\Windows\system32\"! I simply right clicked on that to create a shortcut for a addon utility toolbar for quick access. For anything you want instant access to that's one way to see that taken care of.

    Right. That's how I did it initially. A bit awkward though.

    Well that's why it ended up in a folder used for a new toolbar not just left on the desktop. But youi can also pin the shortcut to the taskbar as another option. I did that for the snipping tool when not finding Accessories until the new toolbar for Programs was seen to.

    On a VM not direct install to a drive you won't be finding the ProgramData folder at all. That left out making a toolbar for Programs since there was no main folder to find! Manual this and manual that shortcut being added to each toolbar it seems.

    In VMPlayer. It's a hidden folder.

    You mean I might have to go into the folder options>view tab?!

    I got a little busy trying to figure out why I am not able to connect online with the VM Player install so enjoy the view! The previous 32bit install ran into the same problem "network adapter not detected" but under "other devices" it clearly shows the Realtek PCI GBE Family controller, sound card(creative), tv tuner card, SCSI controllers while you are not able to install device drivers on a VM.

    The install there was for reference while booted in 7 while I still have a normal install to drive working if I need to boot into that as I will back and forth over time.
