I am using Mac for almost a week from now and I wonder how to monitor my Memory usage and Cpu usage. In Windows, it is simply Ctrl+Alt+Delete to view your Task Manager. But in Mac,  Task Manager equivalent is called Activity Monitor.

Activity Monitor will give us info about our system’s health, from CPU usage, Memory usage, Energy, Disk and network represented in Tabs.

Just like Task Manager, Activity Monitor will able us to force an application to quit.

On launching the Activity Monitor, I don’t find any shortcut keys for it but using the shortcut keys for Search ( Command + Space) which in windows keyboard equivalent (Windows + Space) then type Activity Monitor. That should displays the Activity Monitor application as result of the search and click it. Also , you can use Launchpad and search Activity Monitor.
