is there a development group improving the Windows Task Manager? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When my 4 core i5 is getting bogged down i look the processes panel to see what is eating resources.

    Multimedia creation takes alot of dedicated CPU cycles, the windows interface and other non work related programs do not need to be given all four cores.

    when i go into the affinity settings and reduce a process down to one core, the settings do not keep. when i reboot they seem to revert.


    Is it possible to have a load and save settings set of buttons beside the "end process" button?

    It would be great if there was a quick way to shift gears and let my Adobe software or Newtek lightwave or propellerheads Reason have almost all the power with little or no overhead.
