    Save affinity for programs


    Hi. Now every time launching an old program (i.e. The Simpsons Hit & Run) it loads veeeery slow and I have to always manually set the affinity to two CPU's instead of four and then program runs faster, especially the load time, it loads waaay quicker.

    So how do I set the affinity and it always stays like it, even after restart.

    Cheers

    You can run the program from a custom shortcut. See "from a shrtcut" section on this page:

Is there a way to set CPU affinity or priority to an app in the dev preview at all? I checked task manager, but the feature seems to no longer be in there as it is in previous versions of Windows.
