Feature Request: Kill multiple processes at once RRS feed

  • Question

  • Occasionally, I need the ability to kill all processes with the same name at once (in my case, it's msbuild.exe). It's a pain to go through and kill them one-by-one, and so far I've been too lazy to write a shell script to do it for me.

    Would be great if Process Explorer allowed:

    1) multi-select of processes and killing the selected ones in one command; and/or

    2) killing all processes with the same name as the selected process.

  • Well, you don't have to script nothing at all.. just use TaskKill

    taskkill /IM notepad.exe /T /F

    Or Sysinternals PsKill

    pskill -t notepad.exe
