Microsoft is working on two new features for Windows 11’s Task Manager: Microsoft Edge integration and Eco Mode. Microsoft Edge integration is now rolling out to devices running Windows 11 Build 22000.282, while the Eco Mode feature is expected to arrive later this year or early next year.
To ensure the browser doesn’t reduce the performance of your machine, Windows 11’s Task Manager can now better manage resources used by the Edge browser. As you’re probably aware, managing browsers using the Task Manager can be very frustrating and Microsoft wants to improve the experience.
Microsoft Edge 94 comes with several improvements for Windows 11’s Task Manager to better represent the browser processes. On Windows 10 or older, when you open Task Manager and tap on the Microsoft Edge processes tab, you will come across a list of processes using the generic name “Microsoft Edge”.
Currently, it is impossible to close tabs or extensions using the Task Manager. Thanks to the new update, Task Manager can now display a detailed view of the browser processes.
For some services like Microsoft Office web, item (tab) would share the same process with other items. You can click on the arrow to expand the process and see the other items of Microsoft Office.
