Ever wondered which program has a particular file or directory open? Now you can find out. Process Explorer
shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded.
The Process Explorer
display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer
is in: if it is in handle mode you'll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer
is in DLL mode you'll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer
also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded.
The unique capabilities of Process Explorer
make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.
