Process priority [RESOLVED]





RiCtee
Simply question: how do you set the priority of processes in task manager so that it will stay that way, even when you reboot the computer?
redice
It is not a simple question. I know that I can change task priority in the task manager, but the change will lose when the system is restarted. I think there may be a "priority helper" tools to do this, but I don't know where to find the tool yet. Smile

for the command line processes (including some client and server such as mysql ), you can start it with 'start' command.

open a command prompt, then, issue a start /?. you will present a list of options that control the priority of a application.

you can create a shortcut for ease access.

The process I want to set is RAM_XP.exe, program that frees up RAM. It starts when I log in. I remembered successfully setting taskmgr.exe to "High" a while ago. Any more solutions?

this will work, but if you want many of them to start automatically at startup do the same command line, create a .bat file and set it to run at startup.

Ok, it works now. Here's the bat file I used:
Code:
START "RAM_XP.exe" /MIN /ABOVENORMAL "C:\Program Files\RAM Idle LE\RAM_XP.exe"

Thanks everyone!! Very Happy
