Destroy window

This scheduled task type allows destroying window.

Window title
Title of the window to be destroyed.

User name whose processes may be killed
Only processes running in the security context of the selected user will be killed. If you want to kill processes running under current user context, leave this field blank. You can also specify * to kill processes from all users.

All windows whose title begins with the specified text
Destroy all windows whose title begins with the text specified under Window title.

All windows whose title contains the specified text
Destroy all windows whose title contains the text specified under Window title.

Restore minimized window before closing
When you are killing an application that has some unsaved data, it tries to display a prompt for confirmation similar to this:

Confirmation prompt
Click the picture to enlarge.

Which causes the application's button on the taskbar to blink. When the option is selected, the application window will be restored, and the prompt for saving unsaved data will be sent to foreground.

Kill process without giving it chance to save data
If this option is selected, Advanced Task Scheduler will kill the process without giving it a chance to save data. If the option is not selected, Advanced Task Scheduler will send window the same message as Windows sends when user clicks the Close button button on the window title.

Advanced Task Scheduler can terminate only those processes, which have their own windows. If a process does not have its own window, it can be terminated only when the option Kill process without giving it chance to save data is selected.

IMPORTANT:
USE CAREFULLY THE KILL PROCESS FUNCTION. BE SURE THAT BEFORE USING THIS FUNCTION KILLING PROCESS HAS NO UNSAVED INFORMATION. THE PROCESS WILL NOT BE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO SAVE ITS STATE OR DATA BEFORE IT IS TERMINATED. ADVANCED TASK SCHEDULER WILL NOT ASK YOU TO CONFIRM THE PROCESS KILLING.

List all found processes to the log file
Save list of all found processes to the log file.

Returning codes

Exit code: Number of destroyed windows
