General Change Task Manager Real Time Update Speed in Windows 11

  • Staff

Task Manager can be used to view and manage your processes, performance statistics, app history, startup apps, users, process details, and services in Windows 11.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, Microsoft has updated the design of Task Manager to match the new Windows 11 design principles. This includes a new hamburger style navigation bar and a new settings page. A new command bar on each page gives access to common actions. The dark theme has now been brought to Task manager and will automatically match the system-wide theme configured in the Settings app.

The real time update speed in Task Manager is how frequently the data in Task Manager is automatically updated (refreshed).

You can select High (.5 second), Normal (1 second), Low (4 seconds), or Pause for your update interval speed.

This tutorial will show you how to pause or change the real time data update speed in Task Manager for your account in Windows 11.

Here's How:

1 Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc).

2 Click/tap on Settings in the left pane of Task Manager. (see screenshot below)

3 Select High , Normal, Low, or Pause for what you want in the Real time update speed drop menu.

You can also press the Alt + U keys to open the Real time update speed drop menu, and press either the H key (High) , N key (Normal), L key (Low), or P key (Pause) to select what you want.

4 You can now close Task Manager if you like.


That's it,
Shawn Brink
