    How to set the CPU priority to prefer foreground apps


    When using Windows, chances are you’ll want the CPU to prioritize apps that are running in the foreground. This is because apps or programs in the foreground are the ones you are currently using, so setting Windows to prioritize them will help them run better and faster. Windows does some of this by default, but [...]

    An app is suddenly running in background instead of foreground as it should

    I run Windows 10.

    When I tried to start an app it suddenly started to run in the background instead of foreground as it should, as seen in the Taskmanager.

    It is an "external" app and is thus not listed in the Settings-privacy- background apps list

    I want to force it back to run as foreground app again.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks Shawn, I've just tried it and I'm not sure if that's going to do what I want. It doesn't seem to have done at any rate.

    Putting this into a command prompt opens the program in high priority:
    start "" /High "C:\Program Files\LTC\LTspiceXVII\XVIIx64.exe"

    but what I really want (if possible) is to be able to click random files (applicable to the program of course) and get it to open in High Priority.

    The newly created shortcut following Polo's suggestion opens the program itself correctly, although unfortunately not correctly from clicking random files. If I browse for the file from within LT then its all good.

    I hope these images make sense How to set the CPU priority to prefer foreground apps :) It would just be the icing on the cake to be able to do this.
