Can I get a list of all running applications in Windows 10 Mobile so I can programmatically close them? RRS feed

  • Question

  • It's a little annoying having all the apps running in the background on my phone and having to close them one at a time. Is there a way to get a list of the running apps and them close them? I'd like to create a little application that you could just click and close app the apps. My guess is no because I don't think it's allowed for an application to close a separate application so I'm guessing that this would need to added at a lower level than the context an application is allowed to run in but I thought I would ask anyway. Maybe there is an API call to do this that I couldn’t find.
