I've noticed within task manager under details you are able to right click a process/running program and change it's priority. I use a program called Video Enhancer AI which enlarges/upscales videos and sometimes depending on the video file can take up to 4 hours or more to process a video and this is with a R5 3600 at 4.2ghz and a RTX 2070 Super Overclocked. I figured if I set the programs priority to high from its previous setting of normal then perhaps it would utilized more system resources and get the job done faster. Well I was wrong, changing it made absolutely no difference. So what is the point of this option if it doesn't actually do anything? I've tried it on other programs as well and saw absolutely no difference.

All it does is give that program higher priority to the CPU.

ah okay. I wish it did more, becuase the video Enhancment program i use only uses about 12% CPU and 20% GPU. If I were able to get it higher I could possibly cut my render times down by half, which would make the job go alot quicker. I already contacted the developers of the program to ask them if there is a way for me to get it to utilize my CPU and GPU more and I'm waiting to here back from them. But since I already have the program set to it's maximum settings I don't think there is much that can be done. I think the developers just have to tweak it to utilize CPU and GPU better. Anyway thanks for the info, i appreciate it.
