What is Qttask.exe?

Save

Operating systems generally run background processes and services to enable or enhance a program’s core functionality. Apple’s multimedia application QuickTime for Windows operates in a similar fashion through the use of the Qttask.exe system process. Qttask.exe is responsible for running the QuickTime system tray icon.

Purpose

  • Qttask.exe provides a shortcut to various QuickTime-related settings and preferences through its system tray icon. These include options to register the program, optimize audio-based preferences, toggle automatic updates, among other related functions. In essence, the process’ system tray icon provides instant access to QuickTime’s core settings due to its friendly accessibility.

Considerations

  • Although Qttask.exe is not known for excessive CPU consumption, you may wish to disable it to free up additional memory. Right-click its system tray icon, followed by “QuickTime Preferences.” Click the “Advanced” tab and uncheck the “Install QuickTime Icon in System Tray” option. Click “OK” to apply all changes.
