        Read the article. There’s an option to switch on third party and Win-32 app monitoring.

        I found this article to be informative and useful.

Especially during file transfers, downloads and local drive transfers.  In Windows, I monitor less, but that’s because I care less, as I seldom use Windows for productivity tasks.
