Instructions: Enable “End task” option on the taskbar in Windows 11 Build 25300+ (Dev)

Coming soon to Windows 11 is a new way to end frozen programs. Users can now simply right-click on the application icon on the taskbar and select the End task option. The innovation was discovered by the user PhantomOfEarth in Insider Build 25300, available on the Dev channel.

However, this is a rather controversial feature. It will certainly appeal to advanced users, but can create problems for those who accidentally click on this button and close the application without saving changes. To solve this problem, Microsoft should hide this context menu option by default and only show it if the CTRL or ALT key is held down at the same time.


  1. Download the ViVeTool utility by this link. This is a new version of ViveTool 0.3.2, details of which we have covered in our material.
  2. Unpack the downloaded archive to any place on your computer (for example, you can create a ViVeTool folder in the root of the C: drive and place the files there).
  3. Open a command prompt as an administrator (for example, by typing CMD in the search and selecting the appropriate item).
  4. In the command line, navigate to the folder with ViVeTool using the command cd /d , then press Enter. For example: cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
  5. Enter command vivetool /enable /id:42592269 /store:both and press Enter.
  6. Make sure that the command line shows the message “Successfully set feature configuration”
  7. Restart your computer to apply the changes.

To disable the function, use the command:

  • vivetool /disable /id:42592269 /store:both
