How to terminate app in Android Studio— app running on separate device

The app runs great, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to terminate it. There is a “Terminate Application” button, but it’s greyed out, as seen here:

  • “In/out/inout” in a AIDL interface parameter value?
  • How to set the Default Value of a ListPreference
  • I’ve tried pressing the Home and the Back buttons on the device many times, to no effect.

    The app is from the second lesson in the Android Studio tutorials, so it’s the bare minimum amount of code (it’s one lesson after Hello World). Is the problem that there’s no onClose() event, so it just keeps running?

    Edit: I should add that I think it’s still running because messages are still coming through the debugger. Although, it’s just occurred to me– is the debugger simply listening to the device, and those messages aren’t coming from my program, but are just background messages from the device?

    Edit2: Solved thanks to dexter. You need to select the process name (com.mycompany.myfirstapp) before the terminate button will become active.

    That just happened to me.
    The solution is to press on the “Debug app” button ( the bug next to the green triangle). A window will pop up that says that it will stop the Emulator. It wont, but Now you will be able to press terminate button.

    Select the process which you want to terminate, and click on Terminate Application.
