    No help file or instructions that I could find.

    Really not sure how it works

    It seems that you choose a length of time for the ‘stop / start’ to happen, but it is the same length of time for all processes that you add.

    It starts a ‘countdown’ as soon as you open it, but it’s not obvious if you have to leave it running / open or whether it has set up a ‘schedule’

    I was really hoping that it could start a process, let it run for a short time and then close the process, but it seems to be hardwired to do a stop first and then a start.

    I have a process I want to run that saves some info from my PC. It just needs to be started once a day and then closed. I was really hoping this program would do that for me but it won’t unfortunately.

    Here’s a 3 line Powershell script that will kill a process and then reopen it. In this example I kill Notepad and then reopen it.

    taskkill /f /im notepad.exe
    & C:\WINDOWS\system32/notepad.exe
    Exit

    Type Powershell in the search box and choose Windows PowerShell ISE.
    Paste above code into the blue area. Then Save As somewhere.
    Open File Explorer and find your saved file. It’s extension will be .ps1
    Right click on it then click Run with Powershell

    Here’s a Powershell script that will open Notepad, sleep 53 seconds then close it.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32/notepad.exe
    Sleep -seconds 53
    taskkill /f /im notepad.exe
