Or press Control + ⇧ Shift + Esc at the same time
Step 2. Click on the Processes tab in the upper left corner of the Task Manager window
Step 3. Select from the list the program that stopped responding
Click on the name of the problematic program. On Windows 10 and 8, this program will be listed under the heading Applications.

After a couple of seconds, the program should close.
