Windows 8 support is different.  As such, the tried-and-true Ctrl-Alt-Delete won’t directly get you to the task manager in Windows 8.  Instead, you’ll need a different combination.  Yes, Ctrl-Alt-Delete will still work, but won’t directly get you to the task manager.

Here’s the fastest way to go to your Windows 8 task manager:

  • Type Ctrl-Shift-Esc all together.  That’s it.  Then, you’ll be directly in the Task Manager.
