Task Manager is one of the most useful tools in Windows. It’s a small utility that lives in the Notification Area of your desktop and lets you see notifications from various programs on your computer. For example, you can have Twitter notifications appear there, so you can easily click on them and read the latest tweets without having to open up a dedicated browser tab.
You can also set up different alerts for different programs. So, if you’re an Instagrammer, you can set up a notification for when someone comments on a photo you’ve posted. Or, if you use the Strava sport and fitness app often, you can have alerts set up for when you reach a specific mileage goal or when a friend posts a new workout on your behalf.
Although Task Manager is incredibly useful, it lacks one feature that many people would find handy. That is, the ability to run a specific program or activity with a betting theme. For example, you may want to run Photoshop with the theme that when you open up the app, the image you’re working on automatically crops to the size of a football pitch.
Thankfully, the folks behind Betting on Task Manager have thought of this need and have provided us with a way to automatically run programs with a betting theme. In this article, you’re going to learn how to do this, as well as how to configure Task Manager to your liking.
Setting Up The Theme
The first step is to set up the theme. To do this, open up the Settings app and navigate to the Themes tab. Here, you can choose from a range of beautiful and slick themes, all with a betting motif. Once you’ve made your selection, click on the blue ‘Set As Wallpaper’ button.
Now that the theme is set, you can click on the ‘Start’ button to the right of the wallpaper selection to launch Task Manager. The app will load with the wallpaper you chose, and it’ll feel just like an all-new version of the app.
Activating The Theme
The second step is to activate the theme. To do this, click on the clock icon in the upper-right corner of Task Manager. This will bring up the settings menu, where you can choose from a range of settings related to the app. Make your selection from the drop-down menu and click on the ‘Set’ button.
Now that the theme is active, you can click on any app’s icon in the system tray (the small icon in the bottom-right corner of your screen) to bring up the app’s Settings screen, where you can choose the theme colors. Once you’ve made your selection, click on the ‘Set’ button and the app will reload with the new theme.
Tweaking Task Manager
The next step is to tweak Task Manager. To do this, head back to the Settings app and this time, click on the ‘Task Manager’ entry. Here, you can adjust a bunch of settings, related to how the app looks and works. You can hide the app’s icon from the system tray, change the colors of the app’s interface, and adjust the size of the text in the notification bubbles. Just head into this section of the Settings app and make your desired tweaks.
Once you’ve finished adjusting the app’s look and feel, you can hit the ‘Save’ button to save your settings. Now, when you launch Task Manager, your changes will be immediately available for use.
Creating A New Task
The last step is to create a new task. To do this, mouse over the system tray’s empty area and click on the ‘+’ sign that appears in the bottom-right corner of your screen. A new window will open up, where you can type in a name for your task. Give the task a reason for being there (i.e., I want to have a task called ‘Journal’ so that I can keep track of my writing assignments), and you’ll see a small task button appear in the system tray.
Once you’ve clicked on the ‘+’ sign, you can click on the newly-created task to bring up the task’s main window. Here, you can see available apps and programs to run alongside the task, as well as a list of settings and alerts that you can set up for the app. You can also set a reminder for the task, so you’ll never forget to work on it.
