Hi everyone,

We’re building a Ricochet-inspired chat app, and there are situations where we want to create a new hidden service URL. On macOS and Linux we can send a SIGHUP to make Tor reload its config. What’s the best way to do this on Windows? 

I found an old issue for this (https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/tor/-/issues/10052 <https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/tor/-/issues/10052>) but it looks like it never got addressed.
