How to kill a process in Fedora?

To kill or end a process we need to user task manager. There are several task manager for Fedora and I have already mentioned about System Monitor which is default task manager comes out of the box in the latest Fedora OS. Before this System Monitor came into the picture, there was another software which did the task manager operation - Htop. It is a simple text based software. With this you can view the process as well as kill the process.

Install Htop:

Open terminal and write following command as root user.

yum install htop -y

How it works:

To run this application, open Terminal and type htop. Use up arrow or down arrow to select the process. To kill a process press F9.
