This test will check that the Task Manager can open

Locate "Task Manager" under "System" on the Whiskermenu and click on it
The Task Manager application opens and displays a list of all tasks that are currently running

This test will check that the Task Manager is updating tracked statistics in real time

Locate the two rectangular grids
Two graphs are displayed moving across the grids
Hover over each graph with your mouse
Current CPU and memory utilization are displayed in a popup
Both readouts update in real time
Watch the "CPU" column in the task list
One or more tasks show a fluctuating utilization percentage
Check the status bar at the bottom of the window
Four tracked statistics are displayed: Processes, CPU, Memory, Swap
The numbers update in real time
Hover over the Task Manager icon on the panel
The same four statistics are displayed in a popup and are updating in real time

This test will check the "Execute" menu option

Click arrow to the right of the Gear icon
A drop-down menu opens
Click "Run Program"
The Application Finder dialog opens displaying just a search term field
Enter "ter" in the search term field and click the 'Launch' button
A red icon appears next to the search term indicating no matching application could be found
Click the arrow at the right side of the field or press the down arrow on the keyboard
The Application Finder dialog expands to show a list of applications containing the string "ter"
Note: the match might be found in the application's description instead of its name
Type an "m" at the end of the search term making it "term"
The list of matching applications is refined to just show "Terminal Emulator"
Click on "Terminal Emulator" and then click the 'Launch' button
The Terminal Emulator window opens, the number of Processes shown on the status bar increments and "Xfce Terminal" appears in the Task list
Close the Terminal Emulator
The number of Processes shown on the status bar decrements and "Xfce Terminal" disappears from the Task list
Click arrow to the right of the Gear Icon and select Application Finder
The Application Finder dialog opens in expanded mode
Close the Application Finder dialog
Click arrow to the right of the Gear Icon and select Terminal Emulator
The Terminal Emulator opens

This test will check that actions can be performed on running tasks

Ensure that the Terminal Emulator session that was started in the last test is still open
Locate "Xfce Terminal" in the list of running tasks and right-click on it
A drop-down menu opens
Click Priority->Very High on the menus
An error message pops up saying you don't have the required privileges
Close the error message and right-click on the task again
Click "Stop"
Switch to the Terminal window and type something
Nothing happens because the session is stopped
Back in Task Manager, right-click on the task again
Click "Continue"
Switch to the Terminal window and type something again
The Terminal session is responsive again
Back in Task Manager, right-click on the task once more
Click "Kill"
A confirmation dialog appears
Click 'Yes'
The Terminal session is closed

This test will check the setting of Preferences

Click arrow to the right of the Task Manager Settings icon
A drop-down menu appears
Click each of the options and observe the following results
"Show all processes" shows even more running processes but may not increment the number of processes displayed on the status bar
"More precision" - CPU, Memory and Swap utilization percentages are displayed to two decimal places (although not when hovering over the panel icon)
"Full command line" displays the full file path of many tasks in the list
"Show status icon" determines whether an icon is shown on the panel when Task Manager is running
"Refresh rate" increases or decreases the frequency of statistics updates
The rest of the options display additional columns of information in the task list window

If all actions produce the expected results listed, please submit a 'passed' result.
If an action fails, or produces an unexpected result, please submit 'failed' and file a bug. Please be sure to include the bug number when you submit your result
