Is there anyway of prioritising apps 'permanently' in Windows XP? I
know you can set the prioirty of a process in task manager
(higher/lower/normal) but this only applies until you close the
process or reboot.

If i have Softsqueeze playing and then use Photoshop album (which does
a lot of on-the-fly resizing of images) the sound breaks up. I dont
mind if the next image takes a bit longer to arrive but the audio
should have priority.

If you are running slim as a service, you can set windows to prioritise
services.

It's on the control panel system applet.

advanced -> settings -> advanced

Bruce.

Simon,

If you find a suitable program can you let me know. I am thinking about
adding the option so set the process priority in Windows XP into the
Softsqueeze preferences - would others find this useful?

Regards,
Richard
