It can be really frustrating when a program crashes in the middle of an ongoing task, right? A program that crashes with a state of Not Responding or simply crashes in the middle is a common problem. You can terminate the crashed program using Task Manager or just run Taskkill commands via Command Prompt (as explained in the previous article).

However, there is an even simpler trick that can take down the most stubborn programs in the blink of an eye. Yes, it's a Taskkill command again, but it runs differently. Let's see how.



How to remove an unresponsive program using the Taskkill shortcut in Windows 10

Step 1: Open Notepad and type the following command:

taskkill /f /fi “status eq not responding”

Step 2: Go to archive option at the top left of the file pad. Click on Save eat.

Step 3: Now, give it a related name in the file file name, To select Save as type like All filesand save it as . Beat archive.



Step 4: your . Beat the file is saved. All you have to do is double-click the file when you want to terminate an annoying program. A command prompt flashes for nanoseconds and disappears, closing the unresponsive program in no time.

That's it, and voila!
