How to check which process consumes the most CPU in Windows 11

Large applications sometimes end up using more CPU in the Windows operating system. The more CPU the applications use, the slower the system performance. But when applications that do not necessarily need to be open on the system consume more CPU, the best solution is to close that application and you can see that the system has improved its performance. So if you are wondering how to know which application is using the most CPU on your system, this post will help you know how to do it.
