I really like the System monitor in Ubuntu but there is one feature that I am missing that is in Windows Task manager. In addition to showing the processes Windows task manager also has a tab that allows you to view open windows and to edit settings.

This is more convenient than hunting for the process. Is it possible to do this in ubuntu?
