Please note: all credit goes to kreM!

In this guide, I will show you how to get enter a solo session 100% of the time without much hustle.

Step #1: Joining a Session

Join any GTA Online session. No really, any will do.

Step 2: Task Manager and GTA.exe


Before we proceed on the actual method, I want to inform you that it might seem that the game kicks everyone out of the session. What actually happens is that the game kicks you from your current session and puts you in a different, yet empty session. That means that what ever unsaved progress you have in your current session (On-going MC missions, CEO special offers, VIP work and so on) will be lost. I learnt this the hard way 🙂

Now to the actual method

While you’re in a session, open Task Manager. Head on to Performance, then to Open Resource Monitor on the far down left. Once you’re in the Resource Monitor, it should look something like this:

Step #3: Finalizing

Now, scroll down the list until you find GTA5.exe. Right click on it and click Suspend Process as shown below:

Wait for approximately 5 to 10 seconds, then scroll to find GTA5.exe. Right click on it again and click Resume Process as shown below:

Return to your game. Now it should look something like this:

  1. yes it is, its still a public session so itll work for any mc, vip, or ceo work, as well as anything else that requires a public session. be warned, its still possible for people to end up in your session, so if that happens and you want to return to being completely alone, youll need to repeat the process. theres no way to completely lock them out while still being able to access functions only available in public sessions.

  2. This is very good. Though once in a while another player tends to join in my session. Do I need to repeat the process again to have it myself?

  3. Nice of Steezy to so helpfully link us to that reddit thread he was being such a smartass about. Thanks for the guide!

  4. I tried this method initially but found that it’s only temporary. You will get people joining again eventually. Usually enough time to get a business run or two done though if that’s all you want. Wouldn’t push it past there though.
