Windows Vista – Easy Method To Kill Running Windows Explorer Processes
Whenever you want to terminate a Windows Explorer process running on your PC, what you normally do is, open Task Manager, go to the tab “Processes”, find the process “Explorer.exe”, right-click on it and then choose “End Process”. You may also kill the process using Taskkill command.
However, this procedure is quite long. If you have a lot of Windows Explorer processes running simultaneously on your PC, it becomes pretty troublesome to repeat the above mentioned procedure to kill/end each process.
However, Vista users may apply a simpler and faster method to kill all the running Windows Explorer process with a few mouse clicks. Follow the below mentioned steps:
- Click on “Start” button to display the Start Manu.
- Now, hold the hotkeys CTRL + SHIFT and right-click on the power button
- From the pop up context menu that appears, choose the option “Exit Explorer”.
- This will at once terminate all the Explorer processes running on your PC.
