Is there any way to start google chrome's task manager from command line?

(In fact, I'm even having trouble identifying the process associated with the task manager popup. For instance, I can kill every chrome.exe process except for the gpu-process and utility, neither of which are the task manager pop-up, with the chrome task manager unaffected.)

    You probably need more then a command line to do this, I’m not 100% sure about some command line capable to do this task..

To do this you really need more than the command line.

Try this hybrid script with cmd/bat and vbs, use SendKeys to send Shift+Esc to call the Task Manager in the Chrome interface.

<!-- :
@echo off
"%windir%\system32\wScript.exe" "%~dpnx0?.wsf" & goto :EOF
:: --> 
<script language = "vbscript"> 
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "Chrome.exe", 9
WScript.Sleep 700
CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SendKeys "+{ESC}"
  • You can also use SendKey in Powershell ...
$wshell = New-Object -ComObject wscript.shell
$obj = New-Object -com Wscript.Shell
Start-Sleep -m 700
