Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can end a process running in a user session by using the End Process action in Remote Desktop Services Manager.

ImportantImportant
Ending a process running in a user session without warning the user can result in a loss of data for the user that is using that session.

To end a process running in a user session
  1. In Remote Desktop Services Manager, in the left pane, click the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server on which the user session is running.

  2. On the Processes tab, right-click the process that you want to end, and then click End Process.

  3. Click OK to end the process.

Additional considerations

  • You must have Full Control permission to end a process running in a user session.

  • You might need to end a process if the application is not responding.

  • When all processes that are running in a session end, the session also ends.

  • You can use the tskill command-line tool to end a process running in a user session.
