Kill Unresponsive Apps: Super F4 Hotkey

Windows only
It’s always annoying when a program becomes unresponsive where you have to pull up the Task Manager to kill it, but it can be even worse when some of the fullscreen games start to freeze. That’s how one developer felt, and so they decided to do something about it.

SuperF4 creates a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+F4) that will forcefully close any foreground program, including fullscreen games. Why is this so annoying with games? Well some games prevent you from using shortcuts (chiefly Ctrl+Alt+Delete) when in fullscreen mode. That can be extremely painful since the only action you may be able to take is to shutdown your computer by holding the power button, which is generally a last resort for most of us.

The app also has a secondary mode that is accessed by pressing Win+F4 keys. Your mouse cursor will become a skull, and all you have to do is select the window/program on the screen that you’d like to kill. It sure beats digging through the Task Manager!
