The most common one is Task Scheduler.

To find out more try this on google.


If you don't mean that but how the OS itself works there are tomes of books and articles out there along with a history of people who were involved in the development. This gives you an idea of what they were thinking when the OS kernel was designed.

Hi, thanks for the response.

Yea, I mean more how the OS works. I've been trying to search my library for stuff, but not sure what to look for. Standard search words have either given too many or too few results. Would there be any main texts or authors you are aware?

I know that XP was built from Windows 2000 which was built from NT 4.0 and so on.

Fast forward to today and you don't see much interest in the underpinnings of the OS. Now it's all about the app. Or the final product or 'the whole enchilada.'

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
