Clicked on ctrl./alt & tapped delete. Got a list of 11 items. Then clicked Start-Settings-control panel and the Add/Remove icon and got a list of 46 items. Trying to figure out which are the RUNNING applications. Does this make sense? Thanks

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808 and here to help you today.

When you press the CTRL+ALT+DEL it will display the Task Manager. The items listed in here are the programs and processes currently running in your system. These activities are loaded automatically on startup or manually when a user runs an application (eg. games,MS Word,etc.). Some processes are legitimate, some are dangerous.

On the other hand, items listed in the Add/Remove Programs in the control panel are the programs you had currently installed on your system. Some are running at the moment, some needs user to activate manually.
