Video · A tutorial that demonstrates how to set up an automated Task that monitors all running Windows program instances (background processes and apps). When the Task detects a specific program, it automatically terminates it. This is especially useful if you have a program you do not want to run or if something keeps opening on its own and you want to stop it.

Apps and background processes can be terminated (closed) by their names or PIDs (program identifier). The automated Task is created using a no-code approach, and later can be enhanced to play an alarm sound when the app is closed, or to show a custom message on the active screen.

The intuitive interface with Task creation and configuration Wizards will lead you through the Task design process without requiring scripting skills or preliminary training. It is easy to automate anything and anywhere with this no-code automation platform.
