Add Run With Priority To The Right Click Menu

To allow your Windows 10 operating system to function at It's optimal state, by default, Windows shares your computer's CPU resources between every application that's running In the background. If an application Is allocated a higher priority level, It gets more CPU resources, thus allows better performance. You can however, manually apply priority levels according to your needs. Wouldn't It be great If you could do this via a right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Run with priority to the right-click context menu.

Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. The typical way to set a priority level to a given process, Is to open Task Manager and select the Details tab. From there, right-click the process In question, hit Set priority and you will then see It's respective priority levels as shown below.

As seen In the Image above, there are six priority levels to choose from, namely LowBelow normalNormal (this Is the default level), Above normalHigh and Realtime- all of which can be set according to your usability and needs. However, I strongly suggest not to use the Realtime priority level. This can consume your entire CPU, and leave no room for other processes!

Nothing beats the simplicity of accessibility via a right-click of the mouse, hence I will demonstrate how to add Run with priority to the right-click with Incredible ease. To do this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the setting thereafter.

I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and then double-click the Add Run With Priority.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've now right-clicked on the Google Chrome shortcut on my desktop, and as you can see, the Run with priority setting has been added to the context menu. Let's make sure It's functional, by setting It's priority level to High.

Step Four:

Upon opening Task Manager and selecting the Details tab, as expected, the chrome.exe process now has a priority level of High. This confirms that the above Implementation works without error.

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and wish to remove Run with priority from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Run With Priority.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

The good thing about applying this tweak, Is the fact that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, thus there's very little to no room for corruption. Do note that once a given priority level Is applied, It's not permanent, meaning If the process Is terminated or you reboot your system, It will go back to It's default state.
