Or what I should say is how do I set it to a higher priority and make that setting stick.

Right now I wish to allocate more memory to the Alps touchpad processes to a higher level, but when I reboot and check those processes again, they revert back to what they once were.  The change I make to them doesn't seem to stick.

I'd like to go from Normal: 8 to Above Normal: 10 or above.  Is there a way this setting can be saved?

Thank you

No answer? 

Is this possible with Process Explorer?  Or should I look at something else?

Any help would be most appreciated.  Thanks

Process Explorer cannot set priority permanently.

Note that setting priority does not influence how much memory is allocated to a process. That is not user controllable.

Thanks for the response.  I notice my trackpad behaves better when I'm able to set the priority higher  Even if it's only temporary.

If Process Explorer can't set this on a permanent basis, is there anything out there that will?

Wow, that looks very similar to Process Explorer.

Where is the USerNotes Plugin?  I don't see it on that page?

Thanks
