There are a few proven ways to speed up your computer. You can read all about them in this essential tip. Unfortunately, these solutions can take time, money and effort.
What if there was a free way to speed up programs without much effort? You’re in luck, because this download can simply and automatically increase the performance of your programs.
By default, Windows allocates equal system resources to every program you’re running. If you have a few programs going at the same time, the one you’re focusing on isn’t operating as quickly as it could.
Windows does include tools to adjust program priority, but it’s a tedious, complicated process. This download can automatically set your active window to have a higher system priority.
It’s called TopWinPrio. It checks every second or so to see which window is active at the moment. It sets that window at a higher priority so your computing power is focused on what you’re actually doing from second to second.
That means that your background windows lose priority, so that’s important to consider when using this program. If you’re trying to render something in the background, for example, this utility will slow it down.
Another caveat to consider is gaming. TopWinPrio can be effective at making your game run quicker, but when playing multiplayer games it will cause a conflict with your network’s driver priority and cause lag.
