Windows 11 enables a new way to close applications

Obviously every user of ξέρει πώς να κλείσει μια εφαρμογή που τρέχει στον υπολογιστή του: πατάει το κουμπί X στην επάνω δεξιά γωνία ή κάνει δεξί κλικ στο of the application on the line and select “Close window”.end task 2

But if a program stops responding, closing it requires more steps as you have to open Task Manager and end the process from there. An upcoming feature update will make this process much easier by introducing a new method for closing apps in Windows 11.

Let's see what you need to know about it and how to get it.

Windows 23 version 2H11 brings a new context menu entry that appears in the when you right-click an icon on the taskbar called “Shutdown ” or “End ". It is located next to the option “Close window” or “Close window”, and they may look similar at first glance. However, the End Task feature is different.end task

Unlike “Close Window”, “End Task” terminates the entire application and its related processes. For example, clicking “Close window” in Teams will keep the app running on without open windows, while the “End task” option will end all processes of the Teams app.

Microsoft states that the End Task feature is primarily intended for developers and therefore keeps it disabled by default. Enabling it requires you to enable dev mode first.

How to enable Windows 11's new “End task” option?

The End Task option is currently available for testing in preview builds of Windows 11 from the Dev Channel (the Canary Channel does not have the new feature). You'll need to update to version 23466 or later, then toggle two switches in the Developer section.

  • Open the Settings app > System > For developers.
  • Enable developer mode and confirm activation.
  • Activate the End task setting.

You can now right-click on any running application and end it with End task.
