At some point in time, users of Windows CE devices may need to stop, or "kill," a running process on the device. If a program crashes, but the process is still running, you can stop the process. Though the Windows mobile operating systems don't have a Windows Task Manager, as desktop versions of the Windows operating system have, there's a way to kill processes on Windows Mobile devices in the "System" settings.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press or tap the "Start" option, and then tap the "Settings" link.

  2. 2

    Scroll to and tap the "System Tab" in the "Settings" dialogue box.

  3. 3

    Press or tap the "Memory" option, and then tap the "Running Programs" tab.

  4. 4

    Scroll to and highlight the process to kill and tap the entry.

  5. 5

    Tap the "End" option to kill the process.
