General Turn On or Off Show Full Account Name for Task Manager 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.

You can turn on Show full account name to display the full account name of signed in accounts listed in the Users tab of Task Manager.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Show full account name in Task Manager for your account in Windows 11.

EXAMPLE: "Show full account name" turned on and off in Users tab of Task Manager


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 Check (on) or uncheck (off - default) Show full account name for what you want.

You can also press the Alt + S keys to toggle check/uncheck Hide when minimized.

4 You can now close Task Manager if you like.


That's it,
Shawn Brink
