This video will show you how to create a nifty shortcut for automatically setting your processor thread priority for an application you may be opening. The previous video showed you how to do it manually, which in many cases is extremely useful, but what about those programs you ALWAYS want to have an increased priority on? That is where creating a custom shortcut comes in. You will find creating a shortcut for increased thread priority is not only a cool way to impress your friends (which it is, by the way) but it is also a way to greatly improve your productivity with certain applications.
Notes for the video:
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start “ExecutableName.exe” /PRIORITY /AFFINITY # “Shortcut Location”
“ExecutableName.exe” is the name of the executable in your shortcut
/PRIORITY can be set to /ABOVENORMAL /HIGH or /REALTIME (also /BELOW NORMAL and /LOW)
/AFFINITY # (where the # is the number of cores on your processor + 1)
“Shortcut Location” is the location you copied from the target section of your shortcut.
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start “Recorder.exe” /REALTIME /AFFINITY 3 “C:\Program Files(x86)\CamStudio\Recorder.exe”
