I'm looking to "Gracefully Exit/Terminate" Windows Explorer either from the UI or possibly command line.
There are many articles on the web which explain how to do this in various versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7 & 8):
Here on Stack Overflow, there was one particular article which discusses exiting Windows explorer programmatically: How do you gracefully close Explorer programmatically?
There have been some very detailed & technical responses posted here, so I'm hoping someone on Stack Overflow will actually be able to explain why I do not have the "Exit Explorer" option via the GUI?.
I've tried Ctrl+Shift+Click, Ctrl+Shift+RtClick, Ctrl+Alt+Click, etc. with no luck.
Here is my system info:
- Win7Ultimate SP1 64bit
- 4GB RAM
- no pen or touch
Perhaps it's a SP1 "fix" or a problem with the 64bit version? Somehow it was turned off.
In addition, is there a command line method to "Exit Explorer" gracefully? (afaik
taskkill is the same as killing the process in Task Manager, & is not graceful.)
