PowerShell - Shutting down a program normally

Issue


I want to close a program (simulate File > Close > Exit menu) with PowerShell.

So far I'm using the stop-process command. But in fact it just kill the process and programs like Firefox are being affected.

So are there any command that will allow a clean shutdown.

Solution


Try this:

get-process name_of_program | %{ $_.closemainwindow() }
