WindowsServer process in macOS!!

After finishing a week long Docker training, I was cleaning up all the disk spaces consumed, and the processes occupying my Macbook Pro’s RAM.

Surprisingly, my eyes caught a process that named “WindowsServer”. And the only Microsoft product I was using was Visual Studio Code. I was curious to see if there were any associations at all.

But even after quitting VS Code, the process didn’t stop.

After doing some research, I learnt that WindowsServer is a core part of macOS, and is acts as a liaison between applications running and the display. Anything you see on your Macbook’s display, guess who’s been putting it there – WindowsServer process.

Here’s a detailed explanation you can read.
