Windows 11: you can now force quit apps from the taskbar

Windows 11

Microsoft is constantly working to improve the user experience of its operating systems. One of the most frustrating issues for Windows users is when an application crashes and stops responding. In the past, the only way to force close an unresponsive application was to open the Task Manager, find the application in the list of running processes, and manually end the task. However, Microsoft is currently working on a new feature that will make this process much easier.

The new feature will allow users to force close an unresponsive application directly from the taskbar. Without the need to open the Task Manager. All that will be required is a simple right click on the application icon in the taskbar. And the “End task” option will appear. This will save users time and frustration. As they will no longer need to search through a long list of running processes. To find the application that has stopped responding.
