    Default How to make chrome run in high priority?

    Hey everyone. Chrome seems to be a little slow when i have a lot of tabs open. I changed all the chrome processes to high priority in task manager, and it became faster.
    But there is so many processes to change to high priority. I'm wondering if there's a way to make a shortcut that would start ALL chrome processes(even when i open a new tab and chrome makes a new process for it) in high priority? Thanks for any help.

    Im not sure if you could do this with just a shortcut.
    You can start the first process with a high priority with a line like....
    c:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high "C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
    ...but this will only start the original process in high priority (although that may work for you?)
    Otherwise your going to have to use an app like (first/only one i tried)....
    ....go to Configure.. and turn off Tame Applications Based on CPU Usage and then set a rule for Chrome and all processes will be what you set

    Also it may be worth putting in a request here:

    They are good about writing small tray apps, esp. in AutoHotKey to do easy system things.
    Now and then I do one of the requests, but the moderator there(skwire) is better at ahk than I.

    Also they'll suggest a free utility that already does it if they know about it.
