I have need of this, instead of running the shortcut or exe file first then going into the taskmanager
and changing priority, I would like to be able to right click exe or shortcut, click on priority then pick from
the list, Have searched around and couldn't find an app of this sort. Thanks P.S. This will be for Win XP Pro/SP3

Here you go:  Priority Run

Some notes/caveats:

  • DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT run it from the zip file.  Extract it to its permanent install folder first and then run it from there.
  • For anybody testing this under Vista or Windows 7, you will almost certainly have to run it as Administrator.

Obviously, it's had minimal testing here but seems to work smoothly.  Let me know how it works for you.  Thanks.

I spent 25 years training to be an eccentric then I woke up one morning and realised that I'd cracked it.
I've not had to try since.

I wonder what happens if I click on thi
