Default Leaked Screenshots Point to Task Manager Overhaul in Windows 8

Humanity's knowledge of the next version of Windows has come up by leaps and bounds in light of a number of leaks over the past couple of months. New features revealed thus far run the gamut from hard system reset to system-wide implementation of the much maligned “ribbon” UI. Now, freshly leaked Windows 8 M1 Build 7850 screenshots show an overhauled task manager. Meanwhile, there is another report that points to an “Advanced Task Manager” in the latest builds of Windows 8.

A Mydigitallife forum user has discovered a new task manager interface in the already leaked Windows 8 Build 7850 using a simple registry hack. The “Modern Windows Task Manager” as it is called appears to have a touch-friendly way of killing applications.

According to WinRumors, the latest Windows 8 builds include an Advanced Task Manager, which appears to be a “combination of Microsoft’s Task Manager interface and Microsoft’s Resource Monitor.” It is said to convey important details about active processes, services and the system in general.
