Kill Processes With Super Alt F4

29 Lug/09

microsoft windowsA process that is not responding can be dealt with in various ways in the Windows operating system. One of the most common reactions to such a process is the keyboard shortcut Alt F4 which will send a polite request to the process asking it to terminate. Another option is to open the Windows Task Manager to locate the process and terminate it in there.

Super Alt F4 has been designed to be an alternative to Alt F4’s polite request to terminate a process. The program will kill the process immediately without waiting for feedback from the process itself. The active process can be killed by pressing CTRL ALT F4. The downside of this method is that the process will be killed instantly which could mean that work will not be saved.

The developer of the software program has added another option to kill processes. The keyboard shortcut Windows F4 will turn the mouse cursor into a skull cursor. A left click on any program window will terminate that window immediately. A right-click will cancel the action and return the original cursor.

Super Alt F4 uses roughly 5 Megabytes of computer memory while running in the background. It will display a system tray icon by default which can be hidden by right-clicking the icon and selecting that option.

It probably makes sense to install Super Alt F4 (via Freeware Genius) on computer systems that tend to hang a lot because of unresponsive applications, windows and processes.
