RAM CPU Taskbar is a system monitoring tool which uses your taskbar as a memory and CPU meter.
If you need to keep an eye on your RAM or CPU usage, then, there's no need to peer at some tiny indicator in the system tray, or make space for a desktop gadget. Run RAM CPU Taskbar and the program displays memory and processor bars directly on your taskbar, so you'll always see what's happening immediately.
To get a feel for how the program works, just download and run it. RAM CPU Taskbar adds an icon to your system tray, and a couple of bars then appear to the right of your taskbar. The top one highlights CPU usage, starts green, moving to amber and red as the figure approaches 100%; the lower bar alerts you to RAM use and works in much the same way.
If some aspect of this doesn't suit your needs, right-click the RAM CPU Taskbar icon and click Settings. You'll be able to adjust the bar colours, position, alignment, refresh rates and more.
And, conveniently, all this comes in a small and simple package (a mere 14KB download) which is portable, and so easy to use wherever you are.
