Way 2. Force Kill a Program with Taskkill

Another way to help you force close a program without Task Manager is to use Taskkill command.

Step 1. Open Command Prompt Windows 10. You can press Windows + R, type cmd, and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open and run Command Prompt as Administrator.

Step 2. Next type tasklist in Command Prompt window, and it will list all running processes on your Windows computer.

Step 3. Use the Taskkill commands below to force close any program. You can kill any program by its name or process ID (PID). Here take closing Chrome browser as example.

Taskkill /IM chrome.exe /F

Taskkill /PID 1212 /F

You can also force close multiple processes simultaneously with Taskkill command. You can add the PID numbers of all processes you want to close in the command line, and separate them by spaces.

Taskkill /PID 1212 1280 1308 /F

Our recommendation for your developers:

Though it is acceptable for browsers to cache files, local storage is under your control and it is good practice to clear it, or at least part of it, at certain key events. For example:

  1. If you detect the loadng spinner doesn’t ever go away, even with multiple page refreshes, you may force the user to log out and refresh the cache and local storage programmatically.
  2. If you detect the local storage version number differs from you web app latest version, then local storage should be automatically dropped and refreshed.
  3. You may like to always refresh the app local storage on login/logout, this way customer support reps can ask a user to log out and back in again to rule out any bugs or issues caused by the local storage being stale or corrupt.
