I installed a Sysinternals' utility called Process Explorer.

I am not able to see the utility. Where do I need to go to run Process Explorer?

  • How about making the title of your question a question?

    Are you saying you lost track of where you copied the procexp.exe to?

It doesn't get added to the Start Menu or Quick Launch. You need to run it from wherever you saved the executable. The .exe filename is procexp.exe, look for that and double-click it.

    There is also a option in process explorer to replace task manager, then it launches when you hit c-a-d and select task manager. This is my preferred method.

  • ctrl-shift-esc for a one-stop task mgr launch. Oct 20, 2009 at 16:56

Most Windows system administrators have a directory called C:\bin which houses all the useful tools that one needs, like Process Explorer, Far Manager, grep, 7-Zip, ... And then that is added to the environment variables. Then you can launch anything you use regularly using windows + R and typing the name of the executable.

To edit the environment variables, go to StartControl PanelSystemAdvancedEnvironment Variables.

OR just use windows + pause/break to open system properties.

  • To clarify, need to add a C:\bin entry to the PATH environment variable.

The best way to run Sysinternals tools, I find, is to use the "Live" website, i.e. http://live.sysinternals.com/procexp.exe

This way you don't have to download/install it on any computer.
