Windows 11 taskbar will soon let you quickly kill an entire task or process

Many tasks are constantly operating in the background of Windows 11, just as they were in Windows 10. File Explorer, the notification center, Settings, applications, and even the desktop are all powered by these processes. This results in a large number of processes being launched instantly upon system boot.

Third-party processes can cause issues on your desktop, but the system processes are always safe. As an example, your computer may experience lag or even freeze due to a malicious process associated with a third-party program. If a program or task is frozen, you can force it to respond by opening Task Manager, finding the program’s entry, and ending the process.

In Windows 11 version 25300, Microsoft has made it possible to terminate all running processes and tasks with a single click. Windows 11 includes a new feature that can be accessed by right-clicking any app or process icon and selecting the “End Task” option.
