After its completion the App Information Action retains the queried information on the running application or background process in dynamic variables.
The dynamic values can be retrieved by the means of Variable Wizard and used for automatic ad-hoc configuration of the next Actions, for example, the memory usage can be used in conditional branching.
|Executable||Full path and executable of the app or background process.|
|App name||Friendly name of the application.|
|Process ID||Unique process identifier in Windows.|
|Memory||Amount of memory (in bytes) reserved by the app.|
|CPU time · s||The time (in seconds) the app has spent running is represented by its CPU time in Windows. If the app runs on multiple cores simultaneously, this time reflects the cumulative sum of time spent on each of the cores.|
|Details||Returns key/value pairs of the additional information · Further info|
|Completion status||Retrieve Action execution status with a possible value—Successful or Failed. Or Empty, if Action has not been executed yet.|
|Adjust||Streamline creation of Task workflows even further—instantly make quick variable adjustments such as in-place replacement (all, first, or last occurrence), trimming (whitespaces, quotes, etc.), or changing capitalization. Optionally, set a different display name.|
The names and values match the Windows Task Manager used schema. Because this list can be expanded in future, it is recommended that the Lookup Text Action (with the Advanced grid option) is used for simple, easy, and consistent value retrieval.

Automatic list processing…
The App Information variables returned as lists (even multi-level) can be automatically processed in further Actions. Use the For Each Action to parse a given text string (any list variable) and sequentially retrieve its elements one by one · see list processing examples. Or, use the Split Text and Lookup Text Actions to access list elements by their indices.
