For those who don’t know, every program in Windows has a priority level that determines how much resources it will consume when more than one program is running. So, for example, if you are running two software simultaneously, Windows 10 will prioritize both. That means both of the software will use equal system resources.

Similarly, if you are playing a game without running any other program, then Windows will prioritize the game only. On the other hand, if you have a process running in the background, boosting the game’s priority ensures better gaming performance, even if it means slowing down other work.

Windows 10 lets you change the process priorities. Changing a process priority determines how much of your computer’s resources are devoted to that process. So, in this article, we have decided to share a working method to change process priority in Windows 10 computers.
