Close Unresponsive Application
« on: October 06, 2013, 11:13:01 PM »
Group.......

Any quick way to close unresponsive applications?  I've had some scripts kill browser sessions to the point that the system nearly locks completely.  Opening a terminal and using pkill works, but I'm wondering if there is something easier for students/teachers in the classroom?

Thank you very much.

Press the Windows key to hide all windows, go to System:System Monitor:Processes, locate the offending app, and click "End process"
