Kill Not Responding Tasks Via Right Clicking

For proper functionality of the Windows operating system, tasks continue to operate In the background performing operations as per their objective. Accordingly named, a lot can be viewed In Task Manager however In some Instances, certain tasks fail to respond. This uses unnecessary resources and can cause system Instability. In this tutorial, I will show you how to kill unresponsive tasks via the right-click context menu.

There Is so much activity happening whilst working on your PC, most of which remain unnoticed, thus when a given task Is hanging In the background, It may well remain as such until your system Is rebooted. Prior to that and as already mentioned above, It can cause system Instability, consume resources (CPU, Ram etc) and In some cases, loss of functionality.

In the following guide, I will be using a neat little Windows Registry tweak, that will add the Kill all not responding tasks option to the right-click context menu. You then simply right-click on a blank area anywhere In your computer, select the option and It will automatically terminate each and every unresponsive task.

I've used a Registry file to achieve this, and provided the download links at the end of this article. So let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice. Then, double-click the Add Task.reg file. It will prompt to add the entries Into the Windows Registry, so click Yes to accept.

Step Two:
A message will now be returned, advising that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my PC's desktop and as you can see, the Kill all not responding tasks option has been Implemented. I shall click on It and see the result.

Step Four:
The Command Prompt has opened, and I actually had two tasks that were running unresponsively In the background. They've now been automatically and Instantly terminated.

Last Step:
In the event you wish to remove the Kill all not responding tasks option, simply double-click on the Remove Task.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
Until I discovered this tweak, I always made It a habit to keep the Windows Task Manager minimized- just to keep an eye on whether my system's resources were being consumed due to unresponsive tasks running In the background. Sure, there are other factors that chew hardware resources, but having this option readily available by a simple right-click of the mouse, Is certainly well worth It.

I recommend using this every now and then, to make sure that your PC Is free from non-functional background tasks. The good thing about It, Is that It will kill the lot, Instantly. Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned files.
