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, hence In this tutorial, I will show you how to set the CPU process priority for applications.
Before I make a start, what I'm referring to can be seen In the Image above. This Is accessed by opening Task Manager, and selecting the Details tab. From there, simply right-click the process that you wish to set It's priority level.
There are six priority levels to choose from, namely Low, Below normal, Normal (this Is the default level), Above normal, High 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!
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. Now that you're aware of how things work, let's get this tutorial started.
