    Hello tenmen, :)

    You could use the method in Option 4 of the tutorial below to create a shortcut or .bat file to always run a program with a high CPU priority.

    Alternatively, you could use Nir Sofer's AdvancedRun (which gives a lot of configurable options).

    Note: Make sure you download the right version for your system, i.e. x32 or (more likely) x64.

    Use the AdvancedRun's GUI to create/save a configuration (.CFG) file with the parameters you want, e.g. process priority and/or elevation.

    From then on, use a BAT file.

    For example, say you want to run REGEDIT (the Registry Editor) as 'High Priority' and as 'System'.

    1. Download and unzip AdvancedRun (to, say, C:\Support).
    2. Use AdvancedRun's GUI to select your parameters (shown as a) then save them as a .CFG file (shown as b)... say, C:\Support\rrhpas.cfg.

    3. Create a .BAT file with the following to re-use the .CFG file.
    C:\Support\AdvancedRun.exe /Run "C:\Support\rrhpas.cfg"

    When the .BAT file is run it will create the following process:

    Of course, you'll also have to deal with 'normal' elevation issues, e.g. using Task Scheduler to run the .BAT file.

    Hope this helps...

    I have tried many ways for changing and saving the priorities to high, for games I play,and they succeeded,but only for one game the priority saves only as ''Above normal'' !
    How do I fix this? Please help me!Thanks!
