TLDR
Enter a command. For example: gh screensaver, adb install.

killall

 
Send kill signal to all instances of a process by name (must be exact name). All signals except SIGKILL and SIGSTOP can be intercepted by the process, allowing a clean exit. More information: https://manned.org/killall.
 
  • Terminate a process using the default SIGTERM (terminate) signal:
     
    killall {{process_name}}
     
  • List available signal names (to be used without the 'SIG' prefix):
     
    killall --list
     
  • Interactively ask for confirmation before termination:
     
    killall -i {{process_name}}
     
  • Terminate a process using the SIGINT (interrupt) signal, which is the same signal sent by pressing Ctrl + C:
     
    killall -INT {{process_name}}
     
  • Force kill a process:
     
    killall -KILL {{process_name}}
