    Is there a way to add "End Process/Task" to context menu


    Pretty much the title of the thread. I would like to know if there is a way to add the command to end a task to the context menu. E.G. When you right click something on your taskbar you could click "End Task" instead of "Close", this would be extremely convenient instead of having to open Task Manager.

    You might be able to do something with taskkill (taskkill /? from a Command Prompt for usage info) called from a batch file, VB or Powershell Script.
