How do I close programs running in the background?

There are several ways to close programs running in the background on your computer. The simplest way to do this is to open the Windows Task Manager, select the program you want to close and click the “End Task” button. This will terminate the process associated with the program you selected.

Another way to close programs running in the background is by using the Windows Command Prompt. To open the Command Prompt, press the Windows Key and type “cmd” or “command prompt”. Here you can use the taskkill command to terminate processes associated with programs. The syntax for this command is “taskkill /im [process_name].exe”. You can identify the process name of a program in the Task Manager, under the “Processes” tab.

If you have multiple programs running in the background, it may be easier to use a third-party program such as WinUtilities. This software provides a graphical user interface which allows you to easily find and close any background processes. It also provides some additional features and functions including a system monitor, system cleaner and uninstaller.

Overall, closing programs running in the background is a fairly straightforward process. However, sometimes it can be difficult to identify what processes are running or how to close them using the Command Prompt. In these situations, using WinUtilities can be a great solution. This software provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface which makes finding and closing background processes much simpler.
