    Look at how many times this question has been viewed. Something isn't quite intuitive enough in Ubuntu – Gabriel Fair Feb 25 '18 at 19:28

Yes, there is a gui. If installed, you can start it with


If not installed, you can either search in the Software Center for System monitor or type in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor

Hope this helps.

Or, to make it a bit easier, just open the dash and type System Monitor.
