This tweak will let you create a text file containing all running processes in Windows. This works also in Windows 8 and Windows 7 operating systems.

If your Task Manager is not working for some reason, this trick will help you list all running processes with PID and Memory Usage. You can also kill processes using PID instantly from the command prompt.
