    Hi,

    I'm kind of curious as to what Windows decides to list in the Processes list and the Details list. I'm confused as to why there are far more listed executable files in the Details tab than in the processes tab. Is this because Details lists everything with and without a UI?

    Thanks.

    There should be the same number of processes in both. The Process tab will show you spawned child processes as well as more of a graphical view to easily spot resource hogging processes.
