    In Case you are wondering that what is the direct shortcut for Task Manager in Windows 7.
    Then you have a solution.
    In previous version of Windows (from XP and back) the shortcut was Ctrl + Alt + Del.
    But, in the case of Windows 7. Pressing these combinations of keys, you get a lock screen


    If you directly want to start Task Manger, the shortcut key in Windows 7 is
    Ctrl + Shift + Esc

    Infact this shortcut also works with Windows XP, Windows Vista.

    So incase if you were wondering how to get the task manager in Windows 7 without doing
    1. Ctrl + Alt + Del and selecting Start Task Manager or
    2. Or RUN and taskmgr

    you can simply press Ctrl + Shift + Esc

    Note:
    It does not matter whether its a Right or Left Ctrl or Shift
