How to Set the Processes Priority
 
Having to prioritize your processes results to a better and efficient CPU utilization. You may want to do this but you must do it right to avoid any damage to your system.

To set your priorities, hold down 'Ctrl' and 'Shift' keys and press 'Esc'. Go to the second tab named 'Processes'. Right click a process and and you will see the Set Priority option. Choose from 'Realtime', 'High', 'AboveNormal', 'Normal', 'BelowNormal' and 'Low' options given to you. The higher the priority, the better the process will work.

In example, if you set a high priority for your CD writer, there'll be no crashed CD's!

I like this, but I tried it on a couple of my video games (half-life 2 episode 1, Far Cry) and it caused them to act very weird and freeze on me...

Dear MaxRabbit

I hear you have half-life , Please send me a link to the file please because someone asked me for the game.

To set task process Priority See Below or above because that is true

Software_Sales, this is an illegal request, and not the first time you have been warned about this.

Changing priority of processes is not an advised practise as it affects the interrupts of all processes. Especially when dealing with large applications such as games, setting the game to be realtime is nice and all, except that there are more than a single process associated with the game, which the .exe is now outperforming, causing irregular behaviour.

Thank you, that was helpful!

And Software_Sales, I downloaded Half-Life here. You're welcome; and I don't see why on earth it was illegal to ask where I downloaded the Half-Life, for Pete's sake.
