Kill 16-bit processes without restarting

This simple command will end all 16-bit apps without needing a reboot.

This tip has two tips really:

The first is an easier way of getting to the Task Manager. Use CTRL-SHIFT-ESC to get to it faster!

The second and main tip is this: Click the Processes tab. Search for NTVDM.exe and end that process. All 16-bit apps will be killed without rebooting.
