    How do I keep priorities on programs?


    I change the priority of my programs sometimes when I run them to get them to go smoother. Is there a way to keep the priority changed to whatever I wanted? For example, when using Microsoft Word, I always turn the priority up to high. Can I make it do this automatically, without having to go to Task Manager?

    Any general tips/help is appreciated.

    You can download this freeware, install it and in the task manager, you'll have an extra option to save.
    Process Priority Saver
    I am currently using Process Lasso instead, it has more features and it is a shareware, so eventually you'd have to buy it.

    Try Cacheman 7.85 !

    Cacheman can fix slow downs, lag, and stuttering not only in desktop applications, but also in computer games including Battlefield 3|4, Call of Duty (CoD), Dishonored, Crysis 3, Skyrim, Witcher 2, Guild Wars 2, World of Warcraft (WoW), and Star Wars – The old Republic (SWTOR). Cacheman will give more CPU power and make more memory (RAM) available to the game. Slow downs, lag, and stuttering in computer games is often caused by background process and disk activity. For example, a background Virus-Scan performed by an Anti-Virus program can significantly slow down the computer. Windows system services are also often the cause for lag and stuttering in computer games.

    Is there a free version (not trial) of this? Or is there a different program that does the same thing and is free?

    Thanks for the help so far!

    UPDATE: I've downloaded Prio, the process priority saver thing, and it doesn't work. I've restarted my computer.
