Task Manager is the most used tool in Windows OS because by using it you can quickly close unresponsive programs and check about unwanted background running programs that reserve huge part of Ram memory. By using task manager, you can check background programs, processes, performance of your CPU, App history, start-up programs, users and all that matter for you.
Anyway, there are several ways to open task manager and I think, you are aware from few basic ways like 'ctrl + alt + delete'. But below I shared some other ways also that normally users don't know about them. You can also open task manager by following them. If you're using Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 then also can follow below. That's not matter, which operating system that you're using now. Because these operating system have almost similar options and task manager ways are also same.

Normally user wanna use keyboard shortcuts and these keys are best to apply or open task manager. No extra time will waste and task manager will be opened easily.
You can use Ctrl and Shift key of both the sides of keyboard, as you wish. If you use left side Ctrl and Shift key then it's good, but if you use at right side, so no problem. But I'll prefer to use left side keys because I'm a left-hander and I always try to use left-hand keys. :p
