Running windows 8 on a local server, creates so many processes inside. Looking for a sophisticated way (Like we search for apps in start menu) to have a particular process out from the bunch of processes inside task manager of windows 8.

  1. Is there any such feature available, which I don't know?
  2. Do we need to have a 3rd party app for the same?

Short of typing in the Process list to select them by name I don't know an option.

However, you could install Process Explorer which allows you to select a process by pointing to a window:

Sorting is just a common idea, which is not helping me out much. Moreover I dont have idea about Process Explorer app that you may talking about. – DOM Nov 9 '12 at 11:58
Joey answered both your questions (1. NO, 2. ProcessExplorer from Sysinternals), and I support it. Link came later, a quick google was no problem for me though ;) – Jook Nov 9 '12 at 12:00
To be fair, the link appeared after an edit. – Joey Nov 9 '12 at 12:01

I have found article on the same. I don't think I need to explain anything else.

Yes you do. Links go stale (and you posted a broken link), and if the link went down, your answer would be useless. You may want to paraphrase and include essential parts of the process. – Journeyman Geek Nov 9 '12 at 12:08
