Windows 7 includes a shell for this type of job, called PowerShell. You can use it to save a list of running processes into a text file
Store List Of Running Processes
1. Step Enter powershell into the search field and hit Enter
2. Step Type get-process > D:\Logs\processes.txt and hit Enter
3. StepDone! Sorry, did you expect more steps?
D:\Logs\processes.text can of course customized – this file does NOT have to exist, simply make sure the path is valid (folder must exist!)
Sort List Of Running Processes by CPU
1. Step Type get-process | sort-object -property cpu -descending > D:\Logs\cpu.txt
My recommendation is that Linux users should quickly get familiar with the Windows Powershell, it supports LS, MAN, PS and many other common Linux shell commands.
As a Linux user it’s definitely handy to have a few familiar commands.
