"tasklist.exe" is a command line tool that allows you to list tasks (actually search and view processes) that are running on your Windows 8 computer.

The best way to start the "tasklist.exe" is to run it in a command line window:

1. Enter "command" in the Apps search box. Then click "Command Prompt" in the suggested match list. You will see a black window with a command prompt.

2. Enter "tasklist.exe /M net*" at the prompt to execute the "tasklist.exe" command. You will see a list of processes that are running with any "net*" modules:

C:\Users\fyicenter>tasklist.exe /M net*

Image Name                     PID Modules
========================= ======== ============================================
taskhost.exe                  2736 netprofm.dll, NETAPI32.dll, netutils.dll
explorer.exe                  2836 netutils.dll, NetworkStatus.dll,
                                   netprofm.dll, NetworkExplorer.dll,
                                   netjoin.dll
tasklist.exe                  2964 NETAPI32.dll, netutils.dll
