we've talked about adding task control to farr,
i'm thinking of letting you type something like *tasks\blah..
to show all running tasks matching blah..

now my question is, what operations would you like to perform on such tasks (presumably through a context menu)?

do people still want this?

Still want it: YES! greenclp  Kiss

minimal operations:
  • Bring to front / restore
  • Minimize
  • Close (be nice)
  • Kill (no mercy!)

Being able to exclude processes (custom rules as for searches) may be useful too.

Also, why not allow the same interface, searching for "pro" shows me process explorer and procexp.exe

To advance that, being smart FARR could know they were the same (the .lnk would have the same target EXE name) then provide a unified menu to open another instance or control an existing one transparently!
