Preferences panel, can be opened with WiXkill preferences popup menu item. This panel allows to specify what WiXkill should do when a window is selected:


"Hide Window" comes with WiXkill version 0.8. This option hides windows but does not exit process.

"Close window"simply send the standard close command that close a window on Microsoft Windows systems. It is the softest method known by WixKill, but also the less efficent. Indeed, a stuked program can't handle such a command. In many case when you close a program main window, this might close that program too.

"Exit thread" is an intermédiate method that will exit a part of a program (a thread) and all window associated. Depending on the program, it will be able or not to continue working. This methode is armfull for a program, but still softer than next methods.

"Kill thread", as previous method, this on will kill a part of a program (a thread) and all window associated. Depending on the program, it will be able or not to continue working. This methode is very close to the last method that consists in killing a process in its whole.

"Kill process" is the most armfull method, but the more efficient to kick away any bothering window or process.

 During window tracking process, you can press at any time following key combinations to temporarly change window close command:
Left-CTRLALTSHIFTHide window
Left-CTRLClose window,
ALT = Exit thread,
SHIFT = Kill thread (except for Windows 98),
Left-CTRL + ALTKill process.
 (SHIFTALT or Left-CTRL + SHIFT = Kill process)
