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 App history tab in Task Manager shows historical resource utilization metrics for apps. By default, the view shows only Microsoft Store apps resource utilization.

You can turn on Show history for all processes to see historical resource utilization for all apps in the App history tab in Task Manager.

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


EXAMPLE: "App history" tab with "Show history for all processes" turned on and off

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 history for all processes for what you want.

You can also press the Alt + P keys to toggle check/uncheck Show history for all processes.


4 You can now close Task Manager if you like.

Thanks a lot!
Possible in the registry?

Hello, and welcome. :-)

Process Monitor doesn't show a change made to the registry for these settings.

I'm thinking it may be saved to a JSON file now since the new Task Manager.
