Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Prioritize processes and applications using this handy utility, though only experienced users should alter settings. SetPriority's simple tabbed interface is sparse but intuitive. An application's priority determines which applications get CPU time first. SetPriority shows currently running processes or applications. With a right click you can quickly raise or lower priorities. The utility offers priority settings of real-time, high, above-normal, normal, below-normal, and low. You can preset priority values for commonly used applications or processes. SetPriority will then automatically override their default priorities each time they run. SetPriority lacks a help file for novice users. Though how to use this program is simple, there is no explanation for why or when to use it. This utility is extremely small and would be a valuable tool for system administrators and advanced users.
