I am with windows 8.1
I remember certain utilities or modifications in the windows registry to accelerate the time of closing the windows system.
I have found nothing for windows 8.1 safe.
I would like an utility to be executed automatically when reiniating or turning off the system to close apps of my election.

Do you know anyone ?

Best Regards

Curt

How to close an app in Windows 8

Closing Windows:

I have found nothing for windows 8.1 safe.


By default, Windows 8.1 should be configured to start up and shutdown fast (you can confirm Fast Startup\Shutdown is enabled by scrolling down the System Settings box) but if it’s still not shutting down to your standards you can do a few things:

The fastest way to shutdown your computer, without pulling the plug, is to press the Windows Key + r and type: shutdown /s /t 0

- it's easy to make such a hotkey combination part of a shortcut:

Right click the desktop and go to New and choose Shortcut.

Enter this: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

The “/s” thing tells Windows to shutdown and the “/t” says wait 0 seconds in time to do it. In other words, do it now!

Just create a shortcut to force shutdown and your problem should be solved.

Sorry, Contro, Now I have tried it myself on Win_10: The method will of course close Windows all right, but \sometimes/ it didn't work with my Firefox, so there may easily be others it doesn't work with. :-(

I know this method.

But it's safe ?

Some programs is better wait certain time.

So I would like to control the process more accurately.

You might consider somehow using an AHK or batch file to send commands to Process Hacker to Terminate specific processes. It seems to have a pretty effective Terminate command that has the necessary priority interrupt status to stop most stuff in its tracks. Or even maybe use AHK on its own? I haven't used AHK for terminating processes, so I don't know whether it gets the necessary priority interrupt status.

Perhaps. I have the killprocesses.exe AHK script with an ini in this format :
[settings]
  NumberOfProcesses=2
  process1=winamp.exe
  process2=iexplore.exe

  SecondsBeforeKilling = 5

But then I will have to make another script to close the system...
