I'm using task manager to monitor CPU usage while using an application. Sometimes though, task manager dissapears (gets hidden behind application) and I cant see it. Are there any keystrokes that let me switch to it and view it while the application is open.

I tried ALT + TAB and it isnt working

The application is proprietary medical software

    Ctrl-Shift-Esc should bring it to the front. Then go to its Options menu and check Always on Top to keep it from disappearing again.
