    How to Add 'Run with priority' Context Menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Windows shares processor resources between all running processes based upon their priority level. If a process (application) has a higher priority level, it gets more processor resources for better performance compared to a process having lower priority.

    If you like, you can manually set priority for processes to run with a Realtime, High, Above normal, Normal, Below normal, or Low priority level in Windows based on your needs instead of the default priority. The changes you make to the priority level of a process (application) are only temporary and not set permanently. Once the application is closed or you restart the computer, Windows will forget the priority level you set for it.

    This tutorial will show you how to add Run with priority to the context menu of .exe files to change the process priority of applications for processor resources in Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu (if added).

    Note   Note
    The Run with priority context menu will not set the priority level of applications that Run as administrator.

    In this situation, you will need to manually set priority for the application instead.

    @Brink, Nice!

    How might one go about getting items such as this into Immersive Context Menus?

    I'm afraid I haven't figured out the immersive context menus yet either.

    All good!
    Shift/Right Click on the Taskbar works, but not in the Start Menu, unfortunately!

    EDIT:

    ...or,
    it'll work with a 'homemade' Start Menu.

    Click image for larger version.
