Click this button to stop the current process.

Clicking the button once invokes soft kill allowing the application to catch the SIGINT event and perform graceful termination (on Windows, the Ctrl+C event is emulated). After the button is clicked once, it is replaced with /help/img/idea/2016.3/icon_run_tool_window_kill.png indicating that subsequent click will lead to force termination of the application, e.g. on Unix SIGKILL is sent.
