Quote from: shm0 on October 07, 2020, 09:54:45 PMHi!Is it possible to limit/prevent proccess to change their priority on ther own?I know it is possible to force a certain priority with process lasso but that does prevent pro balance to lower the priority?For example, chrome spawns multiple sub tasks with different priority, some with idle and one (or more) with a priority higher than normal.How to prevent chrome from setting the priority higher than normal but leave the idle ones as they are?The closed I could get was:Add a wildcard rule to set processes to normal at startup.But this also overwrites priority of process lasso itself and the processes that spawn with a lower priority.Thanks.

The steam webhelper app does the same (also browser related) and the blizzard battle.net app.I see no point why those programs should have higher priority than normal.The wildcard approach didn't work, it gets automatically removed somehow.So I setup process lasso to set the priority to normal for those programs.I have one question, when using the strict mode, what does it do? Does it prevent pro balance to change priority to a lower one?
