How many times has it happened to us that we are concentrated in a game and suddenly it crashes, we cannot do anything in the system with the keys or known tools to force its closure (Alt + F4 or the Task Manager), simply nothing responds, Although everything seems to be lost, it really is not so since Windows 10 integrates an option to correct this, although its purpose is not 100% to correct frozen games and we are talking about virtual desktops..

 

It is annoying that we are playing our favorite games and that a bug or an error is made that freezes the screen and we cannot continue playing. Besides that, sometimes we can't even close it and we end up desperate. That is why we are going to see today how to force close a frozen game in Windows 10.
