Switching Between Views
Performance Monitor has a total of three different views: Chart, Log, and Report. Each of these views is represented with icons on the toolbar. Notice the similarity of the icons' locations on the toolbar. This has been migrated from Windows XP Professional.

When views are changed, menu items are automatically changed to handle the options available in each view. Some of these menu items are specific to a particular view. Other menu items will change part of the item to reflect the view.
