Microsoft is testing a new “End Task” option in the Windows 11 build 25300 in the dev channel. With the help of this option, users will be able to end the entire task or process from the jump list without opening a task manager.
Right now, if you right-click on the specific opened app icon on the taskbar, the jump list only has the option to close the app window. The same option isn’t useful most of the time. Like, it cannot end the process or task for a particular app running in the background or when the app become unresponsive.
The addition of the End Task option in the Windows 11 jump list will make closing an app task a single-click process and save extra clicks that users have to perform to launch Task Manager and close the task from there.
Right now, the End Task option is hidden in the Windows 11 build 25300 and interested users have to enable it manually. Below in this blog post, let’s learn how to do that:
Before you start following the steps, you need to keep a few things in mind:
- The steps discussed below will add the End Task option to the Jump list, and it’s not working yet.
- It’s an experimental feature and there’s no guarantee that the same feature will be made up to Windows 11 OS.
- The feature is under development and unstable.
- To enable this feature, we’re going to use a third-party program.
- These features are highly experimental, so we recommend users try them on virtual machines and secondary PCs
