I using a custom .bat file that closes my chrome browser, but can't seem to find information on what syntax I need to add in order for the process to end after a given amount of time. Can anyone, at least, point me in the right direction?

As an example of what I am trying to do, I want chrome to close 30 minutes from when I execute the following .bat file: taskkill /F /IM chrome.exe* I imagine I am missing something quite simply here.

you can insert before your command

timeout /t 3600

which will pause your batch for 3600 seconds (60 minutes).
