With the CMD command you can quite quickly quit programs and applications and restart!
There are also tools for such tasks, such as the free Windows tool ProcessKO, but you do not always have to have a program on your PC.
Here's a simple example how to restarting the File-Explorer, if File-Explorer hangs!
Create a batch file on the desktop with the name (as example) restart_explorer.bat
and enter the following commands
taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F explorer.exeThe first closes all explorer.exe processes / programs
The second one starts the ms-explore
By double clicking on the batch file both commands are executed immediately. (... see Image-1)
Quite, smart, fast and easy!
