Q. How do I access Resource Monitor in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2?

A. Resource Monitor is available in the System Tools folder under Accessories in the Start menu. You can also run resmon.exe.

The tool works similarly to the Windows Vista version, with some redesign and additional information. Shown here is the Server 2008 R2 version of Resource Monitor. You can see some detail on the tabs and additional view sizes for the overall graphs.
