Windows users use Task Manager to terminate any task if that’s become unresponsive. Luckily, in Linux distributions, you can easily terminate any unresponsive application with single-mouse-click. Here we use Xkill. It’s a handy utility to terminate any task easily. Here’s the procedure:
- Open Terminal and type xkill.
- Your mouse pointer would turn into a shooting pointer; somewhat like the cross-sign.
- Now click on the unresponsive application with your mouse. The application would terminate instantly and your mouse pointer would regain its normal appearance.
