How to Shutdown a course Without Task Manager in Windows 10

If the Task Manager isn’t helping you in closing unresponsive programs, here’s a method to shutdown any program without task manager.

In Windows, the job Manager is one of the most useful and versatile tools. It shows a lot of information and gives you great treatments for the important applications and services. If you find an unresponsive application, you should use the job Manager to quickly end the prospective program with only a few clicks. When you end a program while using Task Manager, it force closes this program so that it doesn’t freeze the entire system or perhaps your work.

As good as it is, there might be instances when the job manager fails. For example, a few days ago I have seen a course freeze and no matter what Used to do, the job manager did not open. Simply put, there isn’t any obvious way for me to close the unresponsive program. In those types of situations, there aren’t many ways you can follow to shut down a course using the task manager.

So, without further ado, let me show how you can close unresponsive programs without task manager in Windows 10.

Note: The below methods can also be followed in Windows 7 and Windows 8 too.

1] Command to make Close Unresponsive Programs (Command Prompt)

When there is an unresponsive program, use a simple command to kill that program. Just follow the steps out of the box and you’ll be good.

1. First, open an elevated Command Prompt window. You can do that by searching for “cmd” within the start menu, right-clicking onto it and selecting the “Run as administrator” option.

2. Every running enter in Windows is automatically assigned a Process ID. We can use that ID to end the job. So, execute the below command to list all of the programs. Next, find the unresponsive app and duplicate the corresponding PID (Process ID).


3. Once you have the procedure ID (PID), execute the below command while replacing “<processID>” using the actual process ID.

taskkill /PID <processID>

Once you execute the command, you will notice a “Success: Sent termination signal towards the process with ID <processID>” message and the target program will be force closed.

2] Create Taskkill Shortcut

If executing an order every time is simply too much for you personally, you can create a shortcut. Whenever you execute the shortcut, it’ll shutdown a course without Task Manager.

1. First, right-click around the desktop and select the “New → Shortcut” option. Within the location field, copy and paste the below command and then click the following button.

taskkill /f /fi “status eq not responding”

Whenever a program isn’t responding, that specific program window will have “Not Responding” in the window title. The above mentioned command will detect the windows that have “Not Responding” in the title window and force closes them.

2. Name the shortcut and then click the “Next” button.

In the future, whenever it comes with an unresponsive program, double-click on the shortcut you just created and it will shut down the program without having to open the task manager.

3] Use Process Explorer

Process Explorer may be the first-party Microsoft tool that is a perfect and robust option to the Task Manager. Using Process Explorer, you are able to kill any application with only a single click. Let me demonstrate how.

1. First, download Process Explorer from Microsoft’s official website. Once downloaded, open the ZIP file and extract the application to your desktop. Next, right-click on it and choose the “Run as administrator” option.

2. The user interface may overwhelm you at first but it’s pretty simple to use. From the list, find the unresponsive program, right-click onto it and select “Kill Process” option.

3. As soon as you select the option, the applying is going to be killed forcefully.
