[PowerShell] Close the FileBot Desktop application gracefully

Post by rednoah »

You can use PowerShell to close Desktop applications like so:

powershell: Select all

Get-Process | Where-Object {$_.MainWindowTitle -eq "FileBot"} | ForEach-Object {$_.CloseMainWindow()}
Start-Sleep -Seconds 10

:!: Please close FileBot gracefully before shutdown /f since killing the FileBot process regularly can lead to unexpected issues:

Error: Select all

WARNING: The index for data file *.data is out of date, probably due to an unclean shutdown.
