Is it possible to add the Chrome Task Manager to the Chrome Unity quicklist as an option?

I'm not sure you can start it with task manager window opened. But if it's possible, it must be with the "--webui-task-manager" switch.

Open this file for editing:

gedit ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

Find the text below:

X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=[your quicklist option groups]

Change it to:

X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=[your quicklist option groups];TaskManager

Then add at the very bottom:

 [TaskManager Shortcut Group]
 Name=Task Manager
 Exec=google-chrome --webui-task-manager

Save and close.
