Kill A Process Using Command Line

If you need to stop a process (program), you can use the "taskkill" command in Windows.


taskkill /im processname.exe /f

You can also kill multiple processes at once that share similar names. Say you want to kill processname1.exe, processname2.exe, and processname3.exe running.

taskkill /im processname*.exe /f
