I open Task Manager very often. Is there a way to assign a shortcut key to open the Windows Task Manager?

Just in case someone stumbles across this question when interested in Mac OS X, there the shortcut for the Force Quit Applications dialog is Cmd-Opt-Esc. Use /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor for anything else. – Daniel Beck Apr 7 '11 at 6:14

CTRL + Shift + ESC will open Windows Task Manager for you.
