CE 6.7 comes with a new process list dialog.
The 'Processes' tab may be overwhelming at times and hence, finding the right process may need some scrolling and present a challenge.
As a courtesy of mgr.inz.Player and Dark Byte, as of CE 6.7, you can place a file called commonProcessesList.txt in the CE install dir.
CE automatically hides the processes you included in this file from the 'Processes' tab.
No more crowded 'Processes' tab -> win.
Handy, aye?

The file is read whenever you open the dialog - so changes to the text file take effect immediately, meaning that there is no need to restart CE.

The format of the file is rather simple.
You simply include the name of the process images, one process (image) name per line.
The hash mark ('#') denotes a comment: CE stops reading the current line when it encounters one and continues reading at the next line.

The Process Explorer from Mark Russinovich (used to be SysInternals, but it's Microsoft these days) is a great tool to inspect processes.
Double-clicking a process should show the process properties dialog, allowing you to copy the details you need for commonProcessesList.txt conveniently.

This thread is intended as a guide to give you the overview above and the sample commonProcessesList.txt below.
In addition, you are welcome to submit your own commonProcessesList.txt for others to see; I fully expect mine to be updated from time to time.

Cheers guys!
I'll consolidate them once I get back home (done).

I'll leave the idea of the GitHub repo to Dark Byte.
If it goes live, I'll include a link here as well.
