From that server workstation, use

NET SESSION to List all sessions connected to this machine
NET SESSION /DELETE /Y to delete all connections
NET SESSION \\ComputerName /DELETE /Y to disconnect sessions from a given machine

I just realized the duplicate question.  Windows 7 will only allow 20 connections so you. An disregard my comment on the other question about raising the limit.  You. An force disconnect users in the share files window.  Make sure users close the explorer windows and programs that utilize the share and then it should disconnect from idle activity.

if you need more than 20 concurrent connections your only resource is to use a server operating system rather than a client operating system.

mwauki,

> is there a cmd to disconnect whateve program that is still open

For closing programs, use TASKLIST and TASKKILL. See my post here: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28972793/Is-there-a-way-to-send-a-close-program-command-via-remote-session.html#a41818645
