List All Running Store Apps With Process ID and Package Name Using Tasklist.exe

Using the Tasklist.exe command-line utility you can get the list of running Windows Store Apps along with their respective Process IDs, Memory Usage and Package Names. Here is how.

Open a Command Prompt window and type:

tasklist /apps

To view the output in List format, type:

tasklist /apps /fo list



The above command-line shows all Apps regardless of their status (running, suspended, not responding, etc). The only list Apps with status “Running”, type in:

tasklist /apps /fi "status eq running"

Tasklist /apps command-line works in Windows 8.1 and higher. To see the full list of parameters supported, type tasklist /?
