  • Process ID · use a process identifier (usually using the Variable Wizard PID value that is returned by other Actions or Triggers).

  • The application "Settings" is currently running.
  • The process "Lighting" recently was closed.

In Windows, an app or background process can have multiple instances running. You have three options to choose from:

  • Selecting an app from the provided list by its name will terminate all instances of the app.
  • Typing the name of the app manually will also terminate all instances of the app.
  • The specific Process ID (PID) of the app will only close the specified instance of the app.

It's important to note that the first two options are for closing all the instances of the app, whereas the last option is for closing only the specific instance of the app.
