    Any way to force max CPU frequency only when running a specific App?

    I'm running into problems running a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) because of CPU speed changes. Every time the CPU clocks down I get a big pause in the audio. So I'd like to keep the CPU speed fixed at its max when using that app.

    I know I can adjust the CPU frequency settings in the Windows power settings but I only want it to be maximum when running that one app. I'd like to leave the CPU speed adjustable when running other apps.

    Is there any way to tell Windows to do that automatically?

    Hello rgames,

    If you like, you could set the app to run at a higher CPU priority. Option 4 will show you how to create a shortcut to always run the app at the CPU priority you want when you run the shortcut.
