How To Kill Processes With PowerShell

If you ever come across an Application Not Responding error in Windows and couldn’t kill the process with Task Manager, then you can give a try to PowerShell. You can actually kill a process or many processes with Command Prompt (Which I have already explained a long time ago).
Now to the task at hand, to kill a process using PowerShell follow below mentioned steps:
  • Open PowerShell from your Applications or open run “Win+R” and type powershell
  • To kill a single process type: kill –processname

  • To kill multiple processes at once type: kill –processname process1, process2, process3

Note: The processname should be exactly the same as shown in your task manager
