If there is no Settings, the local account Settings will pop up, As shown in the following figure.

  2. If the Process is still running, you will receive a prompt: "do you want to close the Clone window? There is a Process running in the current Clone window, and closing it will cause the Process in Clone to fail". Please select "yes" or "no" as needed. On the contrary, if the Process has finished running, you can close it directly without receiving a prompt.
