OK........time to share another kitty tip.
Here's another nifty little tool that I found that works very well for me.
Prio Process Priority Saver.
It adds itself to Task Manager and when you edit the priority that a process is running at, it allows you to make that change permanent so that the next time the program is launched or you reboot you do not have to change it again. So, if you want something to run high or low priority, it will always start up that way.
It is freeware for home users, licensed for commercial use.
Uses next to nothing for system resources.
I have not yet tested how it works if multiple instances of an application are launched.
I did not find anywhere that it says what versions of Windows it will work on.
I tried it on my daily driver, Win 7, and it works correctly.
So if you test it on other versions, please let us know about it here so I can modify the thread title to reflect that.
I know there are other ways to control priority, but this is very small and simple.
It also has a few other little tricks up it's sleeve.
Hope this is helpful for some of you.
A kitty keeps loneliness away.
More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?
Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.
