I have a habit of starting multiple processes... and it's a bugger to step through all of them to close them one at a time.

When you right click on the processes status (e.g., (10 more...)) in the status bar, you see the following:

-->Show Processes
-->Show Output
-->Cancel Process

Please consider adding to the options of this popup menu...

-->"Cancel All Process"

... if more than one process is listed.

I agree with this request as I often have 4 or more processes I am debugging or testing concurrently under Netbeans. 

Implemented as suggested would be a help, but an even better approach in my mind would be to add a whole new processes window to the IDE that shows all the active processes launched out of Netbeans.  It could show the name of the configuration from which the process was run (if started from the configuration) and the main class of the process so that it is easier to distinguish them. And then it could offer the option where one can individually check items and then click something like "Cancel Selected" button.  There could be a "Select All" checkbox somewhere that selects all at once. I don't know the impact this would have on non-Java users, so obviously that would have to be factored in.
