No sufficient rights to change I/O Priority?

So long story short I'm having some sluggish mouse issues in Apex Legends and a reddit post offered advice and said to change the I/O Priority to ''Critical'' on the program but for me I can't do it because I get the error ''You either do not have sufficient rights or the OS does not support the specified IO priority''
Is there any way to give rights to be able to change? I'm on Windows 10 22H2. I'm running it through Steam and the game uses Easy Anti Cheat so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it. Thanks!

The "critical" I/O priority cannot actually be applied to any process. It is reserved for system paging operations. It was removed from Process Lasso last year for this reason.

That said, anti-cheat systems can also block process access and prevent changing the I/O priority. In those cases, try setting the I/O priority rule on the game launcher host process.
