Microsoft's Task Manager app has been around for ages, but there is one thing missing that will soon be added, namely a GPU tab. In its current stage, Windows Task Manager can track the stats of the CPU, memory, disk usage, networking, and more.

According to an official blog post by Microsoft's software engineer Dona Sarkar, "The Performance tab shows GPU utilization information for each separate GPU component (such as 3D and Video encode/decode), as well as graphics memory usage stats. The Details tab shows you GPU utilization info for each process." Members of the Windows Insider program can take this feature for a spin in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16226 for PC.

In addition to the new GPU tab, Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16226 comes with handwriting and keyboard improvements, Emoji 5.0, a currency converter inside the Calculator app, file sharing support in File Explorer, and more. For now, it is not known when will all these be added to the new public releases.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
