Hi, how you can kill power point? 

I tried this method  but it didn't work out for me.

It only closes apps that are "Not responding", if you want to close something manually by killing its task, go to task manager and find the correct proccess.

I've just noticed this, it looks useful for the annoying times when I get something not responding. I've made the shortcut and will try it out when this happens. Thanks.

To stop all running tasks create a powershell script, e.g. KillAll.ps1, and paste this into it.

Get-Process | Where-Object {$_.MainWindowTitle -ne ""} | stop-process

You can create a shortcut, but you must edit the Target with this:

powershell.exe -command "<path to your file>"

for it to work.
