In this post, Ajinkya from DevsJournal shares details on what different CPU priority settings in Windows mean.
Users are often curious about optimizing the speed of their PCs to personally match their needs. Is it possible? The short answer is yes! But it can be done to a certain limit. Exceeding the predetermined performance threshold of the PC can potentially crash all running programs.
In every Windows version, the apps run on a normal priority level with a defined speed to deliver the user a smooth processing speed for all applications. This means the execution of the processes will be considered normal, and the CPU performs at its usual speed. Modern windows allegedly share your personal computer’s CPU resources between running apps. The higher the priority level to prefer foreground applications, the more resources are allocated to the user processes.
