How to close a Shutter instance from another instance

Hi!
I use 3 shutters instances
I need to close the first instance if an event is tiggered in the second instance while keep the second and third instances open

if I use the kill process "Shutter.exe" I kill all instances becase all of them have te same name...
should I use a different Shutter exe with a diferent name (renamed) for each instance for being able to do it or there are a better way?



THANKS YOU SO MUCH

Your suggested approach is the only way to do this from within Shutter.

Alternatively, you could kill a specific instance of Shutter by process ID using an external command line tool, like Taskkill, but you would need to know the correct process ID beforehand.
