a bit different depending on OS but ctrl-alt-del will get you to the task manager, which will allow you to list running apps.

buzzardbait24, Do you by chance mean System Information? Start/Run then type in "msinfo32" (without the quotes) and click OK. You can also access System Information by Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools and click on System Information.
