How to restore the Process Name column in Process Explorer?



Process Explorer is a powerful system monitoring tool from Microsoft that enables users to view detailed information about processes running on their system. It includes a wide range of features, including a detailed view of the threads, modules, and handles associated with running processes, as well as the ability to set priority levels, suspend and terminate processes, and monitor system resources.

One of the most useful features of Process Explorer is the ability to view the process name. This helps users quickly identify processes and determine which programs are running on their system. Unfortunately, the process name column can sometimes be missing from the Process Explorer window. This can be a major inconvenience, especially when trying to quickly identify a specific process.

Fortunately, restoring the process name column to Process Explorer is a fairly simple process. First, open Process Explorer and select the View menu. In the View menu, select Columns. This will open a dialog box that allows you to add or remove columns from the Process Explorer window. In the dialog box, check the box next to Process Name. This will add the process name column back to the Process Explorer window.

Once the process name column has been restored, you can customize it by selecting the “Choose Columns” button at the bottom of the dialog box. This will open a second dialog box that allows you to move or resize the process name column, as well as add additional columns. This can be useful if you want to add additional information about processes, such as the process path or the file size.

Once you have finished customizing the process name column, click the OK button to save your changes. The process name column should now be restored to the Process Explorer window. You can now use this column to quickly identify processes running on your system.

Restoring the process name column to Process Explorer is a simple process that can save users a great deal of time. With the process name column restored, users can quickly identify processes and determine which programs are running on their system. It’s a quick and easy way to make Process Explorer more useful.
