Hi @karthik_C

Kill process is:
Abnormally terminate certain processes regardless of data.

Close Applications :Close in the traditional way. For browsers you can use hot key Ctrl + W.

Kill Process used when the automation struck with unknown reason and need to close and reopen the application, we use kill process

Close application - we use if robot is executing correctly and close the application in a smooth way then we use close application

Hi @karthik_C,

Kill process activity is used when every you want to close any kind of application which will make disturbance to our bot while executing. And Close application should be used when every you want to close any application in the execution level(If your workflow requires to close an application after working on it.)
Thanks,
Vish

Hi @karthik_C

Allow me add two point,
Close Applications has many reasons caused it fail such as to close a note without save,
but Kill Process fail almost only when the user has not sufficient authority.
So, the framework need to use Close Applications at first, and use Kill Process for exception.
