    CPUor RAM task bar?
    Hello, I was wondering if there is an application that can show me just the CPU usage of my computer in a windows on my desktop. I know there is activity monitor but that window take up a bit of room and it would be nice if i could have my CPU or RAM usage shown on a convient sleek window on my desktop.

    Right click the Dock icon.

    Select - Dock Icon - Memory Usage to have it shown all the time on the Dock.
    Select - Monitors - then one of the 4 CPU options for a window of what you want to see.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I personally use the program "Menumeters" from Ragingmenace. It allows you to integrate stats in your top bar. Things like Cpu load, hard disk usage etc etc. Its quite customizable.
