Learning to work through the Windows command prompt. Stuck on processes. I was able to run for an example Calculator
Now for training I want to kill the process in different ways. By name
taskkill / im calc.exe
tasklist / v / fo list / fi "ImageName EQ Calc *" Taskkill / PID 3920
by image name using the filter
Taskkill / Fi "ImageName EQ Calc *"
Why didn’t one of the ways worked? I, of course, glad that
Success: Saved a process of completion of the process with an identifier 3920.
But where is the completion itself?
Answer 1, Authority 100%
1. In the new Windows, the calculator process has the name “calculator.exe”, and not “calic.exe”. “Calc.exe” is a wrapper for reverse compatibility, and a real process in another application (UWP).
2. To complete the process forcibly, not “send a signal”, use the / f key:
taskkill / f / im calculator.exe
