Imagine a world where you can set process priorities, process CPU affinities, and more, and have those settings persist for as preferred! This is one of the promises of Process Lasso’s unique automation capabilities. Take control of your PC through your own manual rules, or let Process Lasso’s automated algorithms do it for you.
Process Lasso’s Automation capabilities include:
Wildcards are accepted in most rules.
Please remember that while Process Lasso offers a plethora of advanced tweaking capabilities, it works out-of-the-box, so we recommend the average user not go around tweaking too much. It is easy to do more harm than good while trying to eek out a marginal additional gain in performance. Process Lasso’s Bitsum Highest Performance power plan (Gaming Mode) combined with ProBalance is about as good as you’ll get regarding performance and responsiveness.
Process Lasso has a robust ability to set default priority settings for a process. This includes the CPU priority class, I/O level, and memory priority. The dialogs below emphasize this point, though these options are also easily accessible via the process context menu (right-click) within Process Lasso’s GUI.

Process Lasso has a robust ability to set default CPU affinities. The CPU affinity of a process is simply the set of logical cores that the process is granted access to. Remember, this inherently constrains a process, limiting it’s threads to acting only on a specific set of CPU cores. Custom CPU affinities can be used for a number of purposes, including a forced reduction in total CPU capacity able to be consumed by the target process.
Go deeper with more advanced rules, which we call the ‘Watchdog’. The possibilities are countless. You can get to this via ‘Options / Configure process watchdog …‘.
