How to Use specific CPU for different application in Windows Vista

Tech Advice:1

 This is one of the most amazing features of Windows Vista that allows you to use a specific CPU for an application. You can assign one cpu to one application and other cpu for other application.
 This feature is only accessible if you are using a Dual Core or Core2Duo or a Quad Core CPU.
 In order to enable this feature, you will have to pass the affinity flag to the start utility in command prompt.

For example

 If you want to use CPU0 to paint brush, then type the following command at the command prompt window:
 c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /C start /affinity 1 mspaint.exe
 You will notice that CPU0 is assigned to paint brush application.
 To assign the same application to another CPU, you can use the following command:
 For CPU0
 /affinity 1
 For CPU 1, use this switch:
 /affinity 2
 You can assign different cpu’s to different application depending on the number of cores in your CPU

set affinity command line windows 10 allocate more cpu to a program windows 10 set affinity windows 10 cpu affinity program allow program to use more cpu windows 10 windows service cpu affinity windows run process with low priority
