Task Manager Options


This has 5 options don't seem like alot but it could help someone new maybe? This can disable Task Manager / Enable it | Hide / Show it and last of all can close it... Simple but people hideing there program could use a simple call to close windows task manager instead of useing App.TaskVisible = False that leaves the program in the processes tree view of windows task manager. Maybe it will help someone/Maybe Not
