Program summary

A task manager for Windows Mobile PDA phone. It does, not only the most wanted job of cleaning system RAM by closing unused tasks, but with many more features. For example, it can correct the overlay problem of the WM6.5.x buttom bar for any programs such as Resco Explorer, also automaticlly set button-X to Close instead of minimizing a window.

Compatibilities
  • Support all WM versions (WM2003, WM5, WM6.1, WM6.5, WM6.5.x).
  • Support all screen resolutions (QVGA, SQVGA, VGA, SVGA, WVGA).
  • Support multi functions (process management, task management, document management, control panel, etc.).
Main features and functions
  • Switch windows or close tasks or system process.
  • Rotate screen orientation.
  • Automatic fix the buttom tool bar overlay in WM6.5.x.
  • Automatic change X-botton to close.
  • Automatic terminate ActiveSync.
  • manage files with XTask.
  • Access the control panel items.
  • Place icon, or show freeRAM on the title bar.
  • Hold the XTask icon and drag on the screen to perform quick function.
  • fully customisable XTask function items, program tools bar for fix under WM6.5.x, icon position on the title bar, etc.
  • Create shotcut buttons in start menu for Restart, Toggle Wifi or bluetooth, screen-off, etc.
To install
  1. UnRAR and copy the 2 files (XHook.exe, XTask.exe) into any folder in the system memory, such as [\Program Files\XTask\]. Running the program from external storage memory is not advised since when connected to PC the external card could be unrecognizable by the system.
  2. Click on XTask.exe to run the program. Check "AutoRun Xtask" for automatic startup.
  • XHook.exe shows the task icons on the title bar. It can serves a stand alone light varsion for simple switching and closing tasks.
  • XTASK.exe is the main program for setup, task lists, control panels, process management, etc.

To uninstall
  1. Quit the XTask process.
  2. Delete the 2 program files and the folder.
  3. Delete the registry [\HKLM\SOFTWARE\XTASK\] and all values.
  4. Delete file XT.REB under the root.
  • XT.REB is an automatic generated signature file for restoration of all XTask settings after a hard reset or flashing ROM.

Your screenshots don't do this app justice! Wow, it is seriously cool. I need to figure out how to keep it alive, but I really like it. It does a lot of things, like show open windows, running services and devices. It also has a nice file explorer.

I may not know what I'm doing, but xtask closes every time I switch out of it. Also, it's kind of weird that the history is stored on the storage card. I guess I'd rather have it go to \windows or \application data. Otherwise, it works really well, and looks amazing. Xhook is really nice, I like having a working taskbar. It's like magic button, but works well with 6.5.3.

The idea to store the history on the storage card is that when hard reset or flashing rom the file won't get lost.

Indeed weird it closes all the time. Perhaps you can check "Digital Memory" in the setting in order to show something on the title bar.

I tried checking dgital memory, but xtask keeps closing. Not a big deal, xhook works well. If I'm in a program, clicking on the start icon opens xtask (I have replace start menu selected). If I'm on the Today screen, though, the start icon opens up the regular 6.5 start menu (which I prefer anyway). It's kind of quirky, but I really like it.

Is there an easy way to load window classes into the fix list? I have a couple apps I'd like re-positioned. I guess I need xtask running in the background for that, though.

Edit: about the history storage location, I personally have a lot of trouble with corrupting my sd card, and have found that it's better for me not to have log or temp files or similar things on the card. I think it would be better to have a reg key where you could choose the path for the xt.reb file. Any, I love this task manager-it's really cool. Here are some screen shots:

Default how to add apps to 'exceptions'?

XHook shows an icon for manila on the taskbar. It shows 2 items in the taskman list also. How can I get these to not show. I tried to add it to the "exceptions" bos under settings, but could not figure how to enter anything into the box.

Any suggestions?

This is a great app!
