  1. Low Priority in Task Manager


    So I got Black Ops Cold War the other day, and I was lagging a small bit from time to time, so I decided to up the priority. I was surprised to find it at "low" but didn't think anything of it, and yet every time I put the priority to normal or above, it automatically sets back to low once I open the game window again. I've never had this problem before. It's not a major issue but i'd like to know the reasoning/fix because its just an inconvenience.

    :)

    reset process priority on task manager

    Why do you think a Process you see in Task Manager is not running at it's default priority?

    Give an example of a Process you think is not running at it's default priority, what is the priority you see in Task Manager and what you think the default priority should be for that Process.

    How do you think the priority of the Processes get changed from their default state?

    If you changed the priority why don't you just change the priority of the Process back to what it was before?

    If you change a Process priority in Task Manager, Task Manager isn't going to remember what the priority was before you changed it.

    Just change it back to what it was before (undo the change) or restart the system and things will be back to normal.

    You can use the instructions in this link to include a screenshot with some examples of the issue:

    Hello Denis, Low Priority in Task Manager :)

    The command in step 2 of Option Two should show your wireless networks listed in priority order. Top of the list is higher.
