Programming for windows: Windows "Exit Explorer" option missing [migrated] on newest questions tagged windows – Stack Overflow
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… very frustrating.
Here is my system info: Win7Ultimate, SP1, 64bit, PentiumD2.8, 4GB ram, no pen or touch
Perhaps it’s a SP1 “fix”?… or a problem with 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.)
Thanks in advance! ~ G
