So I've learned that if you open up your task manager and right click on a process to adjust the priority level for that process, it would allow more less resources to be used on running that process to either increase or decrease it's efficiency.
Here's what I've done:
~I'm on an Admin account using Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit SP1.
~Gateway M-Series Laptop is the terminal I'm using.
~I've run the target application.
~Using Control+Alt+Delete I select the Task Manager and click on Processes tab.
~I find the target application listed, right-click and go to Set Priority.
~Currently, it's marked as normal by default. When I try to set it on High, I get an Access Denied error message.
I've resorted to Google to see if there is a solution and the only ones I've come by are:
1. While in Process Tab, click on "Show Processes from all users" then continue to change the priority.
2. Boot Task Manager by typing "Task Manager" in search under the Start menu, right-clicking it and selecting to run as an administrator.
1. When doing this method, I still get an error message.
2. Task Manager doesn't even appear in my search results.
Is there something that I'm missing, or is there another method to performing this action? Also, is there a way to configure a certain application to run at a set priority level each time it is launched without having to consult the task manager and changing it (a permanent setting)?
Thanks in advance.
If you need some more information, let me know.
