Tasklist

In computing, tasklist is a DOS command-line tool available in Microsoft Windows, local or distant.[1]

It's the equivalent to the UNIX command ps, and can be compared with the Windows task manager (taskmgr).

Usage

tasklist shows all of the different local computer processes currently running. tasklist may also be used to show the processes of a remote system by using the command: tasklist /S "SYSTEM".

Optionally, they can be listed sorted by either the imagename, the PID or the amount of computer usage. But by default, they are sorted by chronological order:
