I am trying to find a way to either disable or completely remove Chrome’s Task Manager.
My proposed solution involves using a batch-file running in the background to detect if the Chrome Task Manager is open, and shut down Chrome if it is. Unfortunately, I do not know batch programming and am low on time for this problem to be solved.
Here’s a couple of ideas I had for this:
This command detects how many instances of Chrome are running:
tasklist /nh /fi "imagename eq chrome.exe" | find /i "chrome.exe" >nul && (wmic process where name="chrome.exe" | find "chrome.exe" /c
This command kills all Chrome processes:
taskkill /im chrome.exe
This does not work because Chrome does not create a new process when the Task Manager is opened, though it does create a new window. (There is no change in the Processes tab of the Windows Task Manager, but there is one in the Tasks tab.)
I will settle for a program that shuts down Chrome if it detects two windows of it open, even partial solutions are welcome at this point.
