Kill multiple processes using the pkill command in Linux

I recently had to open and print a large amount of PDF's using atril which is a PDF viewer for Linux. This left around 30 windows open on my desktop once I had completed the job.

Instead of closing each window, I opened the terminal and then ran the following command to close all the windows at once.

pkill atril
