    Small addendum:

    Apparently, the release zip files of Process Explorer (and other Sysinternals tools) now contain three binaries each.

    Considering Process Explorer as the example:

    procexp.exe
    procexp64.exe
    procexp64a.exe
    

    Where procexp.exe is the 32-bit binary, which also works on current 64-bit versions of Windows as well
    And procexp64.exe is obviously the 64-bit binary, which you should be using on any somewhat modern Windows system. And finally, procexp64a.exe, which is - I assume - the binary for Windows systems running on ARM-based hardware. So this wouldn't even work on a "normal" Windows PC.

    Interestingly, procexp64.exe is actually smaller than procexp.exe, which I think is a bundled executable containing both 32-bit and 64-bit variants.

    So, I guess in your case, procexp64.exe is the one you would want to use..

    You also need to run it as admin to be able to see some processes, otherwise you might see Access Denied.

    The current version is here. It is a zip file with the 2 binaries you need. That is the smallest download available. Of course you can copy the 2 binaries to any other machine to actually run it.

    Process Explorer is a comprehensive system monitoring tool developed by Microsoft. It offers detailed information about running processes, including resource usage and troubleshooting capabilities
