The Gnome System Monitor allows to display on Ubuntu a list of all running processes. Its function is similar to the Windows Task Manager. In this tutorial, we will see how to assign the same keyboard shortcut under Windows (CTRL+ALT+DEL) to the Gnome System Monitor.

Get Started

1. Using the Ubuntu 11.04 dash, search for "keyboard shortcuts" and open it.

2. Click Add.

3. Enter any name of your choice (System Monitor, for example), then submit this command:


Click now Apply. If the keyboard shortcut is already used, click Replace.

4. Select now the already created keyboard shortcut and click Disable.

5. When Disable turns to New shortcut, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to assign it to System Monitor, then click Close.

6. From now on, whenever you press CTRL+ALT+DEL, the System Monitor will appear.
