Kill all the Apps with a Friendly GUI using ADB Task Manager for Windows

Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is very powerful tool, and Android power user is well aware of this. This tool allows users to accomplish many tasks, such as sideloading your favorite ROM or kernel, finding out what’s wrong with an app, or simply stopping or starting a service. As you can see, it can be used to almost everything Android related.

Operations performed on processes are difficult because you need to know the exact name of the package and command to kill it. But with a tool by XDA Forum Member Kingston1, you may now put those concerns aside. As its name suggests, ADB Task Manager is a graphical task manager that you run on your Windows PC. It uses ADB to kill processes on your phone. This task manager can easily be used to kill annoying applications causing instability or other issues. You can also use it for debugging purposes, such as restarting SystemUI.apk without rebooting your device.

This tool requires Windows and .NET Framework 2.0 to run, and your device must be rooted in order to kill all applications. If you are a Windows user and want to play with your Android processes remotely from your PC, head over to the utility thread and give this tool a try.
